MacEwen sponsors Olympia High School student as House page

Last week, Olympia High School student Matthew Scott made the short trip to the Capitol to serve as a page for a week in the House Page Program. He was sponsored by 35th District Rep. Drew MacEwen, R-Union.

During his week at the Capitol, Matthew attended page school every day to learn about the three branches of state government, the lawmaking process, and the importance of civil discourse. He also carried out a number of duties critical to the efficient operation of the Legislature.

“It's always an honor to sponsor our young people as House pages,” said MacEwen. “Serving in the House Page Program is a unique opportunity, and it's great to see future leaders like Matthew excited to spend a week here at the Capitol learning about how state government works. I'm grateful for his service, and wish him the very best going forward. He has a bright future.”

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.
