Graham home-school student pages for state House in Olympia

Kellan Miller, a home-schooled ninth-grader in Graham, served as a legislative page in Olympia for the Washington House of Representatives. He was sponsored by 2nd District Rep. J.T. Wilcox, R-Yelm.

Kellan is a star scout in Eatonville's Troop 604 of the Boy Scouts of America. He is the son of Janet and Donald Miller and grandson of Helen and Carl Klindworth, all of Graham.

“It was great having Kellan work for us in the state House,” said Wilcox. “He's a bright individual and I hope his time spent in Olympia will motivate him to stay interested in state government.”

As a page, Kellan had the opportunity to observe the Legislature in action and was responsible for delivering messages and documents to legislators in their offices, committee meetings and the House chamber during floor sessions. He was also required to attend the daily page school, where he learned the different functions of the Legislature and its members.

To become a page, applicants must have a legislative sponsor and be between the ages of 14 and 16. Additionally, pages are required to obtain written permission from their parents and school. Pages are paid $35 a day for their service.

To be considered for the 2015 legislative session, interested students should apply in the fall. For more information about the House page program, visit: http://www.leg.wa.gov/House/Pages/HousePageProgram.aspx.
