Gig Harbor high school student spends a week in Olympia as page for Rep. Young

Rep. Jesse Young recently hosted Kate Harper, a 15-year-old student at Gig Harbor High School, as a page in the state House of Representatives.

Kate's responsibilities included delivering messages and documents to state lawmakers in their offices, committee meetings and the House chamber. She also attended Legislative Page School. Pages earn $35 per day while serving in the program.

“It was my pleasure having Kate here to work as a Page. I enjoyed her positive attitude and strong work ethic,” said Young, R-Gig Harbor. “She has a bright future.”

In her free time, Kate enjoys playing piano, skiing, and traveling.

To serve as a page for the Washington State House of Representatives, a student must:

  • have permission from a parent or guardian;
  • have permission from his or her current school in the current year;
  • be sponsored by a member of the Washington State House of Representatives; and
  • be 14-16 years old.
