Six Girl Scouts of Eastern South Carolina were accepted into the Girl Scout Legislative Page Class of 2013, and spent three days working in the Statehouse and learning how the state’s government works. 
Alexandra Zimmer of Goose Creek, Tegan Kates of Alcolu, Samantha Lee and Danielle Kriss of Darlington, Janay Crosland of St. Matthews, and Kendra Bethea of Orangeburg received an in-depth look at government in action. They joined six other Girl Scouts from around the state.
South Carolina Girl Scouts in grades 10-12 are eligible to apply for the program. Each applicant is evaluated for leadership skills, community involvement, interest in government and Girl Scout activities by the page program committee.
As pages, the girls assist members of the General Assembly with tasks such as delivering materials and messages within the Statehouse complex, answering phones in the members’ offices and working in the House or Senate chambers when the General Assembly is in session.
