CAMAS – Camas High School student Kailyn Ruzzamenti served as a page in the Washington State House of Representatives last week, sponsored by Rep. Kevin Waters of the 17th Legislative District.

Kailyn, 15, was responsible for delivering messages and documents to state lawmakers working in various locations, including the House chamber. She also attended Legislative Page School during the day, where she had the opportunity to learn more about the Legislature.

“The page program is a great way for students to get involved in the legislative process,” said Waters, R-Stevenson. “Kailyn is smart, attentive, and hardworking. She had a positive attitude all week and it was a pleasure working with her. I’m thankful for her efforts and I wish her all the best in her future endeavors.”

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 and can also earn up to 20 hours of community service.

“I would love to sponsor other students from the 17th District interested in being a page in the House,” said Waters. “Anyone who meets the eligibility requirements can participate in the program. It would be great to work with more of the great young women and men from Southwest Washington.”
