Story posted August 25, 2004

Maine College Republicans State Chairman Dan Schuberth, a member of the Bowdoin Class of 2006, has been appointed to serve as chief page at the Republican National Convention in New York City.

His duties as chief page include overseeing the operations of the 160 appointed convention pages. He will also serve as spokesman for the convention page program, where he will speak to the public and media at several events during the convention.

Schuberth is taking the fall semester off to work for the Maine Republican Party as Political Director. Schuberth, who is from Hallowell, is currently serving in his second term as State Chairman.

Christine Rice, a student at the University of Maine-Farmington, will also be at the convention serving as a page.

"It's an honor for Maine that Dan Schuberth has been appointed chief page at the national convention," said Kathy Watson, Chair of the Maine Republican Party. "The fresh perspective that both Dan and Christine bring to the table will help mold the minds of our future leaders in Maine. The energy, enthusiasm, and participation of students is fundamental to the growth of the Maine Republican Party."

The Maine College Republicans have experienced an unprecedented growth in membership and activism since Schuberth assumed control of the organization in July of 2003. There are currently 13 organized chapters with over 700 members statewide. The Maine College Republicans have worked closely with the Maine Republican Party, Maine Bush-Cheney '04 and dozens of local candidate committees, logging over 4,000 volunteer hours in the process.
