Wilcox sponsors Eagle View Christian School student as House page

Bridger Temple, a 16-year-old student at Eagle View Christian School, recently traveled to Olympia to serve as a page in the Washington State House of Representatives. He was sponsored by House Republican Leader and 2nd District Rep. J.T. Wilcox.

Bridger's interests include playing and refereeing soccer, reading old books, and acting. During his week at the Capitol, he attended page school every day to learn about the three branches of state government, the lawmaking process, and the importance of civil discourse. He also carried out a number of duties critical to the efficient operation of the Legislature.

“Serving in the House Page Program is a such a unique opportunity for students who want to learn more about how their state government works. It also provides us lawmakers the opportunity to meet the future leaders of tomorrow,” said Wilcox, R-Yelm. “Bridger is indeed a true leader. He's bright and hard-working, and represents the very best of our district. I was glad to have the opportunity to sponsor him as a page.”

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.
