SPRINGFIELD – State Senator Andy Manar (D-Bunker Hill) welcomed Bunker Hill High School junior Landon Maedge to the Capitol this week as part of his Future Leaders program.

Maedge, 17, plays football and baseball and is taking lessons to become a pilot. His love of flying began when he was 12 years old and he has continued flying as a hobby ever since. He’s also the president of the Bunker Hill High School FFA. Maedge has enlisted in the U.S. army and will have his basic training this summer. He also plans to pursue his degree in political science. His parents are Jinger Howald and Ron Maedge.

During his visit, Maedge toured the capitol, attended several meetings with Manar, met Gov. JB Pritzker and accompanied Manar to the Senate floor where he watched the proceedings and met other state lawmakers.
