Rep. Richard DeBolt sponsors Tenino middle school student as House page
Tenino Middle School student Ryan Michael Heiser recently traveled to Olympia to serve as a page in the state House of Representatives. He was sponsored by 20th District Rep. Richard DeBolt.
Ryan is the son of Lisa Heiser. When he is not in school he enjoys playing soccer, video games, programming and exploring the outdoors.
“It’s always an honor to sponsor students as House pages,” said DeBolt. “Ryan is a bright young man, I’m sure he will do well in all his future endeavors. I truly appreciate his service to the House and hope it was a good experience for him.”
As part of Ryan’s page duties, he learned to navigate the many buildings on the Capitol campus while delivering messages and documents to legislators and staff. He also attended page school every day to understand the inner workings of the Legislature.
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.
