Rep. Bob McCaslin sponsors high school student as page in state House

Suzannah Hess, a student from Hess Homeschool High School traveled to Olympia April 6-10 and served as a page in the state House of Representatives. She was sponsored by her 4th District Rep. Bob McCaslin, R-Spokane Valley.
“I was really glad to have the opportunity to sponsor Suzannah as a page,” said McCaslin. “I thank her for all of her hard work, and hope she had a great time experiencing the Legislature first-hand.”

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.

Suzannah's time at the Capitol culminated with the presentation of her mock bill, which would require 70% of the tax dollars homeschooling parents pay to the school district to be reimbursed to them for the purchase of curriculums.

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.
