Tumwater High School student serves as page in state House

Tumwater High School student Grant Rompa, 16, served as a legislative page at the state Capitol in Olympia Jan. 15 – 19.

His sponsor, Rep. Dan Griffey, applauded Grant's hard work during his week-long service.

“Grant is an exceptional student and did great work for lawmakers during his week in the Legislature,” said Griffey, R-Allyn. “I look forward to seeing the impact he will make in our communities one day.”

Grant plans to seek higher education opportunities and major in chemistry. He has earned the ranking of Life Scout in the Boy Scouts of America and is on his way to making Eagle Scout.

As a page, Grant was responsible for delivering messages and documents to state lawmakers in their offices, committee meetings and the House chamber. He also attended Legislative Page School during the day.

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.
