BATTLE GROUND – Prairie High School student Addison Randall recently spent a week at the state Capitol in Olympia serving as a page in the Washington State House of Representatives. Addison was sponsored by 18th District Rep. Stephanie McClintock, R-Vancouver.

“It was a pleasure to sponsor Addison in Olympia this week,” said McClintock. “She is a talented young woman with a positive attitude and lots of enthusiasm. She is bright, thoughtful, and hard-working and did an excellent job as a page. I enjoyed working with her.”

In addition to working with McClintock during her week serving as a page, Addison attended Legislative Page School every day to learn about the three branches of state government, the lawmaking process, and the importance of civil discourse.

She also had the opportunity to carry out numerous duties that help the Legislature operate efficiently, including delivering messages and documents to legislators and staff, and assisting on the House floor.

Addison, 15, enjoys politics and softball in her free time.

Each year, students from around Washington 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 $65 per day while serving in the program.
