Adna High School teen serves as a page in the House of Representatives


Tucker Dooms, a freshman from Adna High School, served as a page in the House of Representatives Jan. 27-31. He was sponsored by his 20th District Rep. Richard DeBolt, R- Chehalis.

“The page program is a great way for students to learn firsthand how the state government operates and see it in action,” said DeBolt. “I’m glad Tucker was able to come to Olympia not only to learn about our government, but also to experience the process for himself.”

Tucker attended page school every day during his time in Olympia to better understand the operations and actions of the Legislature. At the end of the week, Tucker wrote and presented a bill that would require cars in our state to have routine carbon dioxide check every two years to prevent pollution.

As part of his page duties, Tucker navigated the many buildings on the Capitol campus and delivered messages and documents to legislators and staff.

Each year, students from around the state apply to participate in the legislative page program. Students spend a week attending page school, learning the inner workings of state government and assisting legislators on the House floor. Pages earn $35 per day while serving in the program.

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. For more information about the legislative page program, visit:
