WASHINGTON – Pulaski Academy’s Juliana Davis traded in the scenes of the Little Rock campus for the opportunity to navigate the corridors of the U.S. Capitol as a Senate Page this spring.

Davis served as one of 28 Senate Pages who prepared the U.S. Senate chamber for the day’s business by distributing documents to senators’ desks, assisting in the cloakrooms, supporting chamber staff, and – when Congress was in session – sitting near the dais waiting to help members delivering remarks or casting votes. 

“It has been an absolute privilege to serve as a Senate Page. My time in the Senate gave me an experience that has truly grown my knowledge of the U.S. government and Congress especially. I’m honored to have contributed to the workings of our government in its day-to-day operation, and I will always look back fondly on this program and how much it taught me,” Davis said.

The 17-year-old rising senior from Arkansas’s capital city earned her appointment to the position from U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR).

“I’m proud of the work Juliana did to support the Senate. She had a front-row seat to a unique lesson on American government that I am hopeful will encourage a lifetime of civic engagement. Arkansans can be proud to have been represented by her in this prestigious program,” Boozman said.

Davis is an accomplished student and leader who aspires to study foreign relations or business upon graduating from Pulaski Academy. She is active in several extracurricular activities including the cross country team as well as the Chinese and Spanish clubs. She also served as junior yearbook editor.

Juliana is the daughter of Cory and Dinah Davis.

The Senate Page program started in 1829 when Senator Daniel Webster appointed the first Senate Page. Today, the program is a unique, highly selective opportunity for high school juniors with a strong academic standing to learn firsthand about the institution often referred to as “the world’s greatest deliberative body.”
