Seton student serves as page in Capitol

The Columbian

WALNUT GROVE — Seton Catholic High School junior Will Mottram of Ridgefield recently was selected and served as a page for the Washington State Senate at the Capitol in Olympia. He was one of 17 students who served as pages during the first week of the 2020 Legislature. Sponsored by Sen. Lynda Wilson, R-Vancouver, Mottram helped deliver documents between offices, as well as messages and mail. Pages spend time in the Senate chamber and attend page school to learn about parliamentary procedure and legislative process. They draft bills and participate in a mock session. “I’ve enjoyed my time here,” Mottram, 15, son of Sarah and Joe Ness, said in a news release. “It’s been a great experience. I learned so much.” Students who partake in the program must be 14-16 years old to participate. They serve for one week during the legislative session, which runs from January to April in odd numbered years and January to March in even numbered years. Find out more at
