Two Anderson County students received personal invitations to be the youngest honorary pages of the Tennessee Senate at the Capitol in Nashville on Tuesday, Jan. 10.
Lake City Middle School seventh-grader EmmaGrace Bridges and Briceville Elementary School fourth-grader Danny Bridges Jr. were invited by Lt. Gov. Randy McNally to attend and witness how the Tennessee government procedures are conducted.
“We were able to witness the newly elected senators being sworn into office, and had the prestigious honor to witness the voting procedures of the senators as they voted for the speaker of the House,” EmmaGrace Bidges said.
“Mr. Randy McNally was voted in to be speaker of the Senate,” she said. “We also got to meet Jan McNally, Sen. Bowling and other senators from other districts around the state. We both were very grateful for this prestigious opportunity and were very humbled by the heartfelt invitation to come and witness these events in person. This is something we will never forget.
“We don’t know what our future holds, but as long as we put God first, we know we have a bright future ahead of us. Thank you so very much Lt. Gov. Randy McNally for the invitation and for everything that you do for our state,” she said.
