Hauppauge: At the July general meeting, Legislator Stephanie Bontempi (R – 18th L.D.) recognized and thanked her 2023 summer intern, Sarah Zepeda. In addition to being Bontempi’s district office intern, Sarah was also part of the legislature’s Legislative Page Program. The Page Program provides a dynamic experience for students interested in government, by immersing them in the legislative process through simulations and real world projects.
“Sarah certainly has a bright future, as she has a positive attitude and a great work ethic,” said Bontempi. “The students that have been involved in this program are true role models for their peers. Many of them, including Sarah, have completed the Page Program on top of working another job and taking summer classes. I wish her the very best.”
Sarah is currently a student at SUNY Stony Brook, expecting to graduate later this year with a bachelor’s degree in history.
