MacEwen sponsors two Oakland Bay Junior High School students as pages in state House

Oakland Bay Junior High School students Sebastian Engel and Clairee Waylett recently traveled to Olympia and spent a week serving as pages in the Washington State House of Representatives. They were sponsored by their 35th District Rep. Drew MacEwen, R-Union.

During their week at the Capitol, Sebastian and Clairee attended page school every day, delivered messages and documents to legislators and staff, and fulfilled other tasks critical to the efficient operation of the Legislature.

“Serving in the House Page Program is one of the most unique and valuable experiences our young people can have, so I admire Sebastian and Clairee for taking advantage of this opportunity,” said MacEwen. “I want to thank them for their service, and wish them the best of luck going forward.”

Each year, students from around the state apply to participate in the House Page 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. Pages earn $35 per day while serving in the program. For more information about the House Page Program, click here.
