Rep. Young hosts Gig Harbor teen as a House page in Olympia
Sam Robinson, of Gig Harbor, recently served as a page in the state House of Representatives in Olympia. Sam was sponsored by his 26 District Representative, Jesse Young.
“It was my pleasure to sponsor Sam. He is a good young man with endless potential,” said Young, R-Gig Harbor. “I hope he had a great time as a page and made some new friends while he was here. He did a great job, and I appreciate his diligence.”
As part of his page duties, Sam, who attends Lighthouse Christian School, learned to navigate the many buildings on the Capitol campus and delivered messages and documents to legislators and staff.
Sam, who is 14, enjoys playing tennis in his free time.
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.
