Graves County High School senior Lucas Campbell poses with U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.). The senior Senator from Kentucky nominated Campbell to be a Republican page this past summer. The unique experience helped Campbell think about his career plans. He met other high achievers from across the country, as well as Senators and their staff members. And, he believes, the month in Washington, D.C., helped prepare him for college. In fact, he learned about the page opportunity in his dual credit classes through Middle College at West Kentucky Community and Technical College. When he finishes there next May, he hopes to have earned the general education credits to qualify him for the Associate in Arts degree before he graduates from high school later that month. Earning those credit-hours would leave him with just the final two years needed for a bachelor’s degree. He calls his time as a page “a life-changing experience for four weeks” that already is influencing his education.
