North Mason high school student pages for state House

Grace Martin, a student from North Mason High School, traveled to Olympia during the first week of session and served as a page in the state House of Representatives. She was sponsored by her 35th district Rep. Dan Griffey, R-Allyn.

“It was honor sponsoring Grace this week to page,” said Griffey. “She is actively involved in her school and community, and I hope her week at the Legislature inspired her to continue on that path.”

At school, Grace is involved with ASB and is the former ASB president of her 8th grade class. She also volunteers for her local PTA and different community organizations.

During her time as a page, Grace attended page school every day to understand the operations and actions of the Legislature. She learned to navigate the many buildings on the Capitol campus and delivered messages and documents to legislators and staff.

Each year, students from around the state apply to participate in the legislative page program. Students spend a week attending page school, learning the inner workings of state government and assisting legislators on the House floor. Pages earn $35 per day while serving in the 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. For more information about the House page program, visit: http://www.leg.wa.gov/House/Pages/HousePageProgram.aspx
