Lacey teen serves as legislative page in Olympia
Bronwyn Clarke, a 10th-grader from Lacey, recently served as a page in the House of Representatives. Clarke, the daughter of Shane and Andi Clarke is home-schooled. She was sponsored by Rep. Richard DeBolt, R-Chehalis.
As part of her duties, she delivered messages and documents to legislators in their offices and on the House floor. During the course of the day she climbed hundreds of stairs and navigated the many buildings on the capital campus.
Each year, students from around the state apply to participate in the legislative 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 legislator sponsor, be between the ages of 14 and 16, and obtain written permission from their parents and teachers. For more information about the legislative page program, visit the Web site.
