Aledo 5th grader is Illinois House ‘Page for a Day’

SPRINGFIELD – Abigail Struble, a home-school 5th grader from Aledo, served as a ‘Page for a Day’ in the Illinois House of Representatives Wednesday. She was the guest of State Representative Dan Swanson (R-Alpha).

Abigail was joined at the Capitol by her parents, Aaron and Melissa. She is active in the Aledo First Baptist Church and says her favorite subjects in school are Bible and Math. Abigail participates in 4-H, softball and tumbling, and is a two-time United States Tumbling Association national qualifier. She is also the 2022 4-H state reserve champion in sewing.

“I enjoyed having Abigail join me in Springfield today,” said Swanson. “She got an up-close look at the hustle and bustle of a typical session day for the House of Representatives.”
