Two local students recently served as pages at the N.C. General Assembly.
Melissa Pulley and Briana Jones served as pages in the N.C. House. They were nominated by N.C. Rep. Bobbie Richardson, D-Franklin, and appointed by N.C. House Speaker Thom Tillis, R-Mecklenburg.
Pulley is a student at Nash Rocky Mount Early College High School and the daughter of Michael and Lisa Pulley of Whitakers. Jones is a student at Nash Central High School and is the daughter of Roderick and Elizabeth Jones of Nashville
For decades, the N.C. House has relied on the service of pages, who help deliver bills and amendments for representatives during daily House sessions and committee meetings, offer assistance in representatives’ offices and run errands around the legislature. Pages spend a week at the General Assembly assisting members and their staff and learning about the structure of North Carolina government.
