MacEwen sponsors home-school student as House page

Fourteen-year-old home-school student Wyatt Curl traveled to Olympia last month to serve as a page in the Washington State House of Representatives. He was sponsored by 35th District Rep. Drew MacEwen, R-Union.

Wyatt is active in Boy Scouts, and has achieved Life rank—the second-highest rank attainable. He is also on the swim team at North Thurston High School, and loves to write stories in his free time.

During his week at the Capitol, Wyatt 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.

“I'm always impressed by the quality of students who apply to serve as pages, and Wyatt is no exception,” said MacEwen. “He's motivated, confident, and has a great head on his shoulders. I have no doubt he'll continue to be successful at whatever he chooses to pursue in life. I'm grateful for his service, and wish him the best going forward.”

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.
