Wilcox sponsors two Yelm High School students as House pages

Yelm High School students Clare Lawlor and Noelle Harshfield recently traveled to Olympia to serve as pages in the Washington State House of Representatives. They were sponsored by House Republican Leader J.T. Wilcox.

Clare and Noelle both participate in a number of clubs within Yelm High School, including FFA Creed Club and FFA Parliamentary Procedure Club. They are also both active volunteers in their communities.

During their week serving as pages, the two students attended page school every day to learn about the three branches of state government, the lawmaking process, and the importance of civil discourse. They also carried out a number of duties critical to the efficient operation of the Legislature.

“I'm so impressed with Clare and Noelle,” said Wilcox. “Not only are they great students, but they also devote a lot of time outside of school to improving people's lives and making our district and state an even better place to live. I appreciate their passion for service, and their willingness to come to Olympia and participate in the House Page Program. I wish them both nothing but the best. I know they're going to make a tremendous difference in this world.”

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.
