MacEwen sponsors Port Orchard student as page in state House

Sixteen-year-old home-school student Marietta Barrett traveled to Olympia last week to serve as a page in the state House of Representatives. She was sponsored by 35th District Rep. Drew MacEwen, R-Union.

Marietta is the daughter of Adam and Desiree Barrett. Her hobbies include playing the violin and the piano, and she also enjoys reading and knitting in her free time.

While serving as a House page, Marietta 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 a unique and valuable opportunity,” said MacEwen. “I admire students like Marietta who have a passion to learn more about how their state government works. I really enjoyed having the opportunity to sponsor her as a page, and am thankful for her 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.
