Rep. Bob McCaslin sponsors Newman Lake student as page in state House

Sponsored by his 4th District Rep. Bob McCaslin, 16-year-old homeschool student Adam Creveling-Hughes traveled to Olympia Jan. 9-13 to serve as a page in the state House of Representatives.

Son of Joel and Karen, Adam is an active member of the Know Your Government (KYG) 4-H program. KYG is a civic education program that teaches students about the legislative and judicial systems, elections and party platforms, and politics and the media.

“I am so pleased Adam could come to Olympia last week to learn about what we do here in the Legislature and how state government works,” said McCaslin, R-Spokane Valley. “I admire his drive for learning and his passion for civic engagement, and am confident that will serve him well. I wish him the best in all his future endeavors.”

During his week in Olympia, Adam attended page school every day to understand the operations of the Legislature. He also learned to navigate the many buildings on the Capitol campus while delivering messages and documents to legislators and staff.

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, visit http://www.leg.wa.gov/House/Pages/HousePageProgram.aspx.
