Griffey sponsors Tumwater teen as page in state House

Pope John Paul II High School student Amber Abbott served as a page in the Washington State House of Representatives from April 1-5. She was sponsored by her 35th District Rep. Dan Griffey, R-Allyn.

Amber, 14, enjoys dance and is a member of a competition team at Olympic Ballroom Dance.

As a page, Amber was responsible for delivering messages and documents to state lawmakers in their offices, committee meetings and the House chamber. She also attended Legislative Page School during the day, where she learned more about the legislative process.

“Pages fulfill an important role during the legislative session,” said Griffey. “Amber was astute and enthusiastic about her role in the legislative process, and I wish her all the best as she wraps up the school year.”

Each year, students from around the state apply to participate in the House Page Program. To become a page, applicants must have a legislative sponsor, be between the ages of 14 and 16, and obtain written permission from their parents and school. Pages earn $35 per day while serving in the program. For more information about the House Page Program, click here.

The 2019 legislative session began Jan. 14 and is scheduled to adjourn April 28.
