Herricks High School junior Namit Kapoor has been selected to participate in the prestigious United States Senate’s Pages Program. Representing the state of New York, he is one of 30 students from across the country to participate.

Kapoor has always had an interest in politics. “The more I learned about the program, the more I wanted it,” he said.

He credited an internship that focused on policy research, Herricks High School, and his parents as huge contributors to his achievement for offering opportunities.

As part of the program, each student is appointed and sponsored by a senator and assigned duties that consist primarily of delivery of correspondence and legislative material within the Congressional complex. Other duties include preparing the chamber for Senate sessions and carrying bills and amendments to the desk. Students also attend classes in the early morning at the United States Senate Page School, a program fully accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.

“I’m ecstatic. Namit is so accomplished, humble, and kind,” said Herricks High School Principal Joan Keegan. “I can’t think of a better person to represent Herricks.”

“This amazing honor is a credit to Namit’s hard work and many accomplishments as a student at Herricks High School,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Fino Celano. “I am certain that he will learn a great deal and always remember this experience. We are all so very proud of Namit!”

Kapoor, who was selected by U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer, will participate in the program from Jan. 30 to June 6, 2022.
