Enterprise Student Completes Senate Page Program

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senator Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) today announced that Camille Bonura has completed the summer session of the United States Senate Page Program in Washington, D.C. She is the daughter of Meredith Mitchell Hamilton of Enterprise, Alabama, and Ross Bonura, also of Enterprise.

During her time enrolled in the Senate Page Program, Bonura was responsible for distributing correspondence and other legislative documents throughout Congress, delivering bills and amendments to the Senate desk, and preparing the chamber for Senate sessions.

“Camille is an intelligent and ambitious young woman who represented the state of Alabama well during her time as a Senate page,” said Senator Shelby.  “The Page Program is a highly rigorous and competitive academic experience that allows students from around the country to play an important role in the day-to-day operations of Congress.  I am grateful for Camille’s hard work, and I am confident that she has a bright future ahead.”

Bonura is a student at Enterprise High School (EHS) where she is an active member of the National Honor Society and Future Business Leaders of America and is also part of the EHS Dance Line.

For over 100 years, high school juniors have been selected and sponsored by Senators to become U.S. Congressional Pages.  In 1829, Senator Daniel Webster appointed the first Senate page.  The program consists of four sessions each year, with a total of 30 Senate pages at any given time.  Several former and current Members of Congress, as well as other distinguished Americans, have served as congressional pages.
