Madison - Sussex-Hamilton High School student Eric Doese will represent the 8th Senate District in the 2018 Senate Scholar program. The Senate Scholar program is a week-long intensive program at the Wisconsin State Capitol in Madison.
Students in the program are introduced to the legislative process. Eric will spend time with Senator Darling and staff from her office. He will also meet with support agencies, staff from Governor Walker's office, a Supreme Court Justice, members of the media, lobbyists, and UW faculty members.
Senate Scholars also serve as pages during Senate floor sessions. Finally, the scholars draft a bill and hold a hearing in a Senate Scholar committee.
Eric Doese is expected to participate in the Senate Scholar program in January of 2018.
