Central Valley High School student serves as page in state House

Christiaan Ramos, a student from Central Valley High School in Liberty Lake traveled to Olympia March 2-6 and served as a page in the state House of Representatives. She was sponsored by her 4th District Rep. Bob McCaslin, R-Spokane Valley.

“It was a pleasure sponsoring Christiaan this week. I believe the page program is an excellent way for students from around the state to learn about our state government,” said McCaslin. “I hope she had a great time making friends and learning about the inner workings of the Legislature. I am grateful for her service this week.”

During her time as a page, Christiaan attended page school every day to understand the operations and actions of the Legislature. She also learned to navigate the many buildings on the Capitol campus, and delivered messages and documents to legislators and staff. Her time at the Capitol culminated with the presentation of her mock bill, which would increase the length of the school day in order to reduce or eliminate homework time.

Each year, students from around the state apply to participate in the House 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, click here.
