Eighth grader William Clark, a student at Discovery Middle School, recently served as a page in the Washington state House of Representatives. He was sponsored by Rep. Monica Stonier.
Pages’ responsibilities over their weeklong appointments include presenting the flags and distributing amendments on the House floor. They also support legislative operations, receive civics instruction, draft their own bills and participate in mock committee hearings.
