AlWood student is House Page for a Day

SPRINGFIELD – Haley Gierach, a senior at AlWood High School, served as a Page for a Day Wednesday in the Illinois House of Representatives. She was the guest of State Representative Dan Swanson (R-Alpha).

“I always enjoy having students come to the Capitol to see first-hand how the General Assembly works,” Swanson said. “It was great having Haley visit us today.”

Haley is active in many different activities at AlWood, including band, choir, theater, scholastic bowl, yearbook and art clubs, and is the treasurer of the school’s National Honor Society chapter. After graduation she is headed to the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater to study communications.
