WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., appointed Cameron George Potter, a high school junior from Peachtree Corners, Ga., to participate in the U.S. Senate Page Program in Washington, D.C.

“I appreciate Cameron Potter’s interest in the workings of the U.S. Senate, and I’m certain that this program will be very beneficial to his understanding of our government,” said Isakson. “I’m proud to welcome Cameron to this unique opportunity to work in our nation’s capital.”

Potter began serving as an Isakson-appointed Senate page on June 11, 2018, and will remain in the program until June 29, 2018.

Potter maintains a 4.0 grade point average at Wesleyan School in Peachtree Corners, where he is captain of both the Mock Trial and math teams. He is the head programmer of his school’s robotics team and has taken related classes through the Duke Talent Identification Program (TIP) and Stanford High School Summer College program. Potter has also earned varsity letters in football and track and field, and he was a member of the swim and dive team.

The Senate Page Program is an enduring tradition dating back to 1829, when the first Senate page was appointed by Senator Daniel Webster. Senate pages are required to be high school juniors and at least age 16.

As Georgia’s senior senator, Isakson is allowed to appoint one Senate page from Georgia per session and there are typically four sessions per year – fall, spring, and two shorter sessions over the summer. Potter is participating in the first of two sessions this summer.

Senate page duties include preparing the Senate chamber for sessions, delivering legislation and correspondence inside the Congressional compound and distributing statutes and amendments on the Senate floor. Senate pages who serve in the fall and spring must also attend academic classes each morning at the fully-accredited U.S. Senate Page School before reporting for duty on the Senate floor.
