Graham student serves as page in state House

Rachel Nagy, a homeschool student from Graham, served as a page in the state House of Representatives April 1-5. She was sponsored by her 2nd District Rep. J.T. Wilcox, R-Yelm.

“I'm so pleased Rachel had the opportunity to come to Olympia and learn about the Legislature,” said Wilcox. “I appreciate her service and I hope she had a great experience.”

Rachel is the daughter of Rick and Lillian Nagy. She attended page school every day during her time in Olympia to better understand the operations and actions of the Legislature. At the end of the week, she wrote and promoted a mock bill to address gun violence.

As part of her page duties, Rachel navigated the many buildings on the Capitol campus and delivered messages and documents to legislators and staff.

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