Wilcox sponsors Eagle View Christian School student as page in state House

Sponsored by 2nd District Rep. J.T. Wilcox, R-Yelm, Eagle View Christian School student Justin Nipper recently traveled to Olympia to serve as a page in the state House of Representatives.

As part of his page duties for the week, Justin learned to navigate the many buildings on the Capitol campus, and delivered messages and documents to legislators and staff. He also attended page school every day to understand the inner workings of the Legislature.

“I really enjoy having the opportunity to sponsor students from my district as pages,” said Wilcox. “The House Page Program provides a unique and valuable experience for junior high and high school students across the state, and I greatly admire the students who take part in it. I know Justin was excited to serve as a page, and I hope his week here was something he won't soon forget. I am grateful for his service.”

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.
