SPRINGFIELD – State Representative Dan Swanson (R-Alpha) welcomed sisters Traidan and Daci Hier of Kewanee as Pages for a Day in the Illinois House of Representatives this week.
“It is great to have tomorrow’s leaders visit us in Springfield to see how our legislative process works,” Swanson said. “Traidan and Daci got to explore the Capitol, meet legislators and see the House of Representatives in action.”
Traidan is a senior at Wethersfield High School, where she is active in softball, cheerleading, golf, FFA, Key Club, student council, yearbook and National Honor Society. She does tutoring and volunteering in the community and is the two-term president of the FFA chapter at Wethersfield.
Daci is a sophomore at Augustana College where she majors in psychology and business administration. She is a member of the Augustana College cheerleading team, a member of the Augustana Republican Club, and made the school’s dean’s list last semester. She was the valedictorian of her graduating class at Wethersfield High School.
They are the daughters of Dan and Tracy Hier. The Hiers are an eight-generation Henry County farm family.
