Matthew Shabino, an OPRF High School junior, will be spending the spring semester in Washington D.C. As one of 30 students nationwide selected to participate in the U.S. Senate Page Program, he'll attend classes at the Senate Page School in the early morning and then spend the remainder of the day working at the Capitol on the Senate floor. 

The pages reportedly live in bipartisan dorms and are not allowed to use cellphones, though they have access to something called a "landline."

Should be an interesting next few months in the halls of Congress.
