Washington Middle School student sponsored by MacEwen as House page

14-year-old student Ian Connolly traveled to the state Capitol earlier this month to serve as a page in the Washington State House of Representatives. He was sponsored by his 35th District Rep. Drew MacEwen, R-Union.

Ian is a straight-A student at Washington Middle School in Olympia. He plays cello and electric guitar, and is also an active member of Olympia High School's sailing team.

While serving as a page in the House, he 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.

“Ian is a bright and talented young man, and I'm glad I had the opportunity to sponsor him as a page,” said MacEwen. “I hope he had a great time making new friends and learning how our state government operates. I'm thankful for his service.”

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.
