Rep. Griffey sponsors Tumwater middle school student as page in the state House

George Washington Bush Middle School student, Reis Howell, traveled to Olympia this month, to spend a week serving as a page in the Washington State House of Representatives. Reis, 14, was sponsored by 35th District Rep. Dan GriffeyR-Allyn.

Reis enjoys several activities but his favorite thing to do is participate in sports. Reis plays basketball, soccer, and track, and he also skis. When he's not playing sports, he enjoys hanging out with his friends.

During his week in Olympia, Reis attended legislative page school every day, delivered documents and message to legislators and staff, and fulfilled several other important assignments vital to the efficient operation of the Legislature.

“I really enjoyed sponsoring Reis, this week,” said Griffey. “He's a smart young man, and he has a bright future. He was attentive and respectful, and I want to thank Reis for his diligent service in the House. I wish him all the best going forward.”

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 visit the House Page Program, website at:
