NORMAN — OKLAHOMA CITY – Norman High School junior Patrick Shrank was selected as Page of the Week by his fellow pages at the Oklahoma House of Representatives in May.
Patrick, 17, the son of Stacy and Melody Shrank, of Norman, served as a page for the office of Rep. Emily Virgin from May 5-8.
May 5 began with orientation. Pages spent the rest of the day working for the office and running messages to state lawmakers.
On May 6 page duties, Shrank attended an educational program in which pages serve as state legislators representing the fictional state of Pageville.
The pages elected legislative officers and participated in a mock legislative session.
“I think Patrick really stood out; he was obviously respected and appreciated by his fellow pages,” said Virgin, D-Norman.
