WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senator Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) today announced that Ryan Williams, son of Jeannine Reid of Madison, Alabama, completed the United States Senate Page Program. For over 100 years, high school juniors have been appointed and sponsored by a Senator to become Congressional Pages.
During his time enrolled in the U.S. Senate Page Program in Washington, Ryan was responsible for distributing correspondence and other legislative documents throughout Congress, delivering bills and amendments to the desk, and preparing the chamber for Senate sessions. Ryan also had the opportunity to participate in the Electoral College ceremony, where he carried the electoral ballots for the state of New York.
“Ryan is an outstanding young man who represented the state of Alabama extremely well during his time in the United States Senate Page Program,” 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 Ryan’s hard work and ambition, and I am confident that he has a bright future ahead.”
Ryan is a student at Bob Jones High School where he is a member of the band and the debate team. He is an active member of the Boy Scouts of America and Tri-M Honor Society.
