Shakira Monroe was selected to participate in the 2013 NC Governor’s Page Program in Raleigh. She was one of nine teens representing Boys & Girls Clubs across North Carolina. Each applicant must be a North Carolina High School student in good academic standing between the ages of sixteen and eighteen years old. Pages are selected to serve one week terms during the legislative sessions and summer with the exception of state and national holidays. The week of April 22-26th was Boys & Girls Club Pages Week.
Governor McCrory believes it is important to inspire the next generation of leaders to get involved in public service. That’s why the governor personally welcomes students to the Capitol City to participate in the North Carolina Governor’s Page Program. Established in 1973, the program provides students with an opportunity to gain hands-on knowledge of the function and roles of state government while learning about the importance of public service. The nine Boys & Girls Club teens also had a private meeting with Governor McCrory as part of the program.
