Cozart serves as page

Liberty Grace Cozart of Salisbury participated in the Governor’s Page Program in Raleigh. Liberty spent a week gaining life experience and providing administrative support as a page for the Department of Commerce for the week of July 18-22.
Liberty is the daughter of Kent and Amy Cozart and is a senior at East Rowan High School.
“By participating in the page program, high school students from all parts of North Carolina have the opportunity to see first-hand how our government and government agencies work,” Gov. Bev Perdue said. “These students represent North Carolina’s future, and it is important for them to understand how our state functions.”
Pages also tour several state government buildings, such as the State Capitol, Legislative Building, Executive Mansion, Supreme Court, Museum of Natural Science, Museum of History and N.C. Correctional Institute for Women.
The Governor’s Page Program allows students to gain knowledge of the roles and functions of state government. During the week, pages may attend press conferences, meet with the governor and assist in day-to-day office operations. Some of their responsibilities include filing documents, assisting in mass mailings, answering telephones and delivering agency messages.
The one-week program is open to high school students between the ages of 15 and 18, who are in good academic standing at their schools. Application forms are available year-round, but appointments are made on a first-come-first-serve basis.
For an application or additional information, contact the coordinator of the Governor’s Page Program toll free at 1-800-820-4483, or visit the program online at www.volunteernc.org/code/govpage.htm.
