The 2017 Legislative Session is in the closing weeks at the Idaho Capitol. Soon, elected officials will leave Boise for their home districts. Another group will also be wrapping up. These are pages: high school students who work alongside the senators and representatives.
Shanyce Barber, a high school senior from Payette, is a page for the 2017 legislative session.
"When I told people I was becoming a page, they were like, 'Why?' They were just kind of shocked," Barber says. "They thought it would be a boring experience, but they couldn't be more wrong."
