Shriver graduates US Senate Page Program

| June 18, 2019

WASHINGTON D.C. – River View High School junior, Caleb Shriver, graduated from the United States Senate Page Program on June 7 in Washington, D.C.

Shriver was one of 30 high school juniors across the United States to be appointed to the spring semester. The program is one of the strictest and most selective in the United States and he was sponsored by Ohio Senator Rob Portman.

Shriver left for D.C. in January to work on the senate floor and to finish his junior year of high school at the page school. During his five-month stay at Webster Hall in Washington, Shriver completed an extremely rigorous school program, worked daily inside the capitol building and on the senate floor. He met and worked with many leaders of our country and attended the State of the Union Address. He visited several cities steeped in American history including Philadelphia, Baltimore, New York City and Harpers Ferry. In addition, he made lifelong friendships with 29 fellow high school juniors from around our nation.

“Being a Senate Page was the most difficult yet most rewarding experience so far in my life,” said Shriver. “I’m mostly proud of being a part of the history of our country.”

Shriver would like to thank his family, friends, community members and Senator Portman and his staff for all their tremendous support.

“Although I’m glad to be home, I will miss the friendships made, the Washington D.C. environment and the inner workings of the United States government,” said Shriver.
