Kennedy Brooks of Ellisville served as a page for the Mississippi House of Representatives during Spring Break. 

Pages generally run errands for officials and House staff. Brooks, 16, is the son of Sheila and Trent Brooks.  He attends Northeast Jones High School and was sponsored for the week by Representative Gary V. Staples (R-Laurel).

When asked about the week, Brooks said, “It has been an extraordinary opportunity to work in the House Chamber and for our representatives.  My experience working in the Mississippi House [of Representatives] has further encouraged my passion to one day be a part of our legislative branch.”
