Wilcox sponsors Graham teen in House page program

Ethan Miller, a homeschooler from Graham, spent a week paging in the Washington state House of Representatives the week of Jan. 27-Feb. 1.

Miller is the son of Donald and Janet Miller. He currently holds the rank of “Lifescout” in Boy Scout Troop #604 in Eatonville. He was sponsored by his 2nd District state representative, J.T. Wilcox.

“I'm proud of Ethan for his work in the Boy Scouts and for his interest in government,” said Wilcox, R-Yelm. “The page program is a great opportunity to expose the next generation of citizens in our state to civics in action.”

At the end of his week in the House, Miller joined other student pages to introduce a mock bill to limit marketing to college students by credit card companies.

Each year, students from around the state apply to participate in the legislative page program. Students spend a week attending page school, learning the inner workings of state government and assisting legislators on the House floor.

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 legislative page program, visit: http://www,.leg.wa.gov/House/PageInternProgram/housepageprogram.htm.
