Caitlin Chastain of Linden and Erin Headley of Cary represented Girl Scouts North Carolina Coastal Pines council while serving as Gov. Pat McCrorys pages during Girl Scout Week.
The Governors Page Program allows students to experience working in a political environment and gain knowledge of the function and roles of state government.
During a week in March, the girls attended a Health and Human Services Legislative Oversight Committee meeting and met with legislative representatives and the governors office staff. They were given tours of the Archives Building and the Innovation Center.
Caitlin and Erin were chosen to participate based on applications that included an essay about a state or political issue.
As pages, the girls connected matters between offices and helped make the day run more smoothly, Erin said. Both also gained a better understanding of how bills are written and passed.
Caitlin, the daughter of Clint and Suzanna Chastain, attends Northwood Temple Academy in Fayetteville.
Erin is the daughter of Chris and Rebecca Headley, and attends Southeast Raleigh Magnet High.
