Tenino student serves as page in the House of Representatives
Tenino High School Sophomore Eric Roberts recently traveled to Olympia to serve as a page in the state House of Representatives. He was sponsored by House Republican Leader Richard DeBolt.
Roberts, the son of Anna and Rich Roberts of Tenino, attended page school each day to learn about the legislative process. He also had the opportunity to sponsor a mock bill with fellow students from throughout the state.
“I am proud to sponsor students so they can come to Olympia and learn about the legislative process,” said Rep. DeBolt, R-Chehalis. “I hope this program will inspire students to become public servants in the future.”
Young men and women have come to Olympia to serve as pages for the Washington State Legislature since 1891. Pages must obtain permission from their parents and schools, and most live with volunteer host families. To learn more about the House Page Program, visit the Web site.
