Mobile Native Caroline McGrath Completes Senate Page Program

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senator Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) today announced that Caroline McGrath, daughter of David and Margaret McGrath, has completed the United States Senate Page Program on Capitol Hill. 

“The United States Senate Page Program is a highly rigorous and competitive academic experience that enhances students’ academic studies by bringing to life some of the issues they are learning in the classroom,” said Senator Shelby.  “I am proud that we have driven, focused students like Caroline to represent the state of Alabama.”

During her time as a Senate Page in Washington D.C., Caroline was responsible for distributing correspondence and other legislative documents throughout Congress, delivering bills and amendments to the Presiding Officer’s desk for processing, and preparing the chamber for Senate sessions.

Caroline is currently a student at McGill-Toolen Catholic High School, where she is on the Principal’s List, an Aquinas Scholar, and a member of various other clubs and organizations. She is also the co-founder of the Little Free Libraries Project, a joint program with Big Brothers Big Sisters of South Alabama that works to help end childhood illiteracy in our community.

For over 100 years, hard-working high school students have been sponsored by U.S. Senators to become Congressional Pages during a semester of their junior year.
