By  | 

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA (NEWSPLEX) -- A Charlottesville teen has been selected for the Virginia House of Delegates Page Program.

Margaret "Molly" Ayres will be participating in the program from Jan. 10 through March 12 during the 2016 General Assembly Session.

Delegate Steve Landes, who represents the 25th District, announced Ayres appointment Monday.

She is a student at the Village School, who enjoys playing the cello and the piano, field hockey, squash, tennis and lacrosse.

"The page program is a unique opportunity to participate in our state government," said Ayres. "This program will broaden by horizons far beyond the scope of things that arm exposed to as school."

Each year, the Speaker of the House of Delegates appoints 13 and 14 year olds from across the Commonwealth to search as pages in the House during the regular session of the General Assembly.

Pages assist the members of the House of Delegates, the House Clerk's staff and other legislative staff in the daily duties required for the operations of the chamber of Virginia's state government during the session.
