Columbia River High School sophomore Symphony Koss is one of 19 students from across the state who recently served as Senate pages for a week during the current legislative session. Koss was sponsored by Sen. Ann Rivers of the 18th Legislative District.

“It’s been a really cool opportunity to come up here and learn about what goes on at the Capitol,” said Koss, who also is a talented musician, in a press release. “It’s been really fun getting to explore all the buildings on campus!”

Added Rivers, “I was more than happy to sponsor Symphony so she could come and page for us this week. She’s a hardworking young woman, and I’m sure she has a bright future ahead of her.”

The Senate Page Program gives students a glimpse of the Legislature as they visit the Senate chamber, learn about parliamentary procedure and the legislative process, draft their own bills and participate in a mock session.
