Washington Middle School student serves as page in state House

Ariana Henry, a student from Washington Middle School in Olympia, recently spent a week serving as a page in the state House of Representatives. She was sponsored by her 35th District Rep. Drew MacEwen, R-Union.

Ariana is the daughter of Cris and Annette Henry. She enjoys playing soccer, and is also musically gifted. She not only plays the piano, but the cello and bass as well.

“Ariana was a big help to myself and my fellow legislators, and I am grateful for her service,” said MacEwen. “It's always exciting to see young civic-minded people engaged in the legislative process. Ariana represented the 35th District well, and I hope she made some great memories during her time here.”

While serving as a House page, Ariana attended page school, delivered messages and documents to legislators and staff, and fulfilled other tasks critical to the efficient operation of the Legislature.

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.
