North Mason High School student serves as legislative page in state House

From Jan. 29 to Feb. 2, North Mason High School student Alexis Skaggs served as a legislative page in the Washington State House of Representatives. She was sponsored by her 35th District Rep. Dan Griffey, R-Allyn.

As a page, Alexis 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.

“I always enjoy seeing young people express interest in public service and civic engagement,” said Griffey. “The page program gives students a unique opportunity to interact with the Legislature and get a behind-the-scenes look at their government in action. I hope this experience will be just one of many public service endeavors Alexis will pursue in her lifetime.”

Alexis hopes to one day be a veterinarian. She play softball, and collects bells and snow globes.

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 2018 legislative session began Jan. 8 and is scheduled to last 60 consecutive days.
