WALNUT GROVE — Nataly Andrushko, a tenth-grader at Seton Catholic High School in Vancouver, recently spent a week as a page in the Washington Senate in Olympia. Andrushko was one of 21 students who served in the Senate during the sixth week of the 2024 legislative session.

She was sponsored by 17th Legislative District Sen. Lynda Wilson, R-Vancouver.

“It was a pleasure to have Nataly as my page. She did an outstanding job here this week,” said Wilson. “I am so glad she was able to learn more about the legislative process and get hands-on experience.”

The Senate Page Program is an opportunity for Washington students to spend a week working in the Legislature. Students are responsible for transporting documents and delivering messages and mail, along with spending time in the Senate chamber and learning about parliamentary procedure and the legislative process. Students also draft their own bills and engage in a mock committee.

Andrushko, 16, said her favorite part was being able to see the lawmaking process unfold. She has been fencing for two years and enjoys hiking with her friends and family. She also has a new passion for rock climbing.

Nataly’s parents are Oleg and Mariya Andrushko of Vancouver.
