Stokesbary sponsors Pioneer Middle School student in House Page Program

John Peck, a student at Pioneer Middle School in the Steilacoom School District, served as a legislative page for the state House of Representatives the week of March 4 – 8. He was sponsored by his 31st District Rep. Drew Stokesbary.

Every year students from around the state apply to participate in the Legislative Page Program. Students spend a week attending page school, where they learn the inner workings of state government, and assist legislators on the House floor. Students also draft legislation and present their bills in a mock committee hearing to fellow pages.

“It is important our young people take an interest in how their state government works. It was an honor to sponsor John in the House Page Program,” said Stokesbary, R-Auburn.

John is the son of Steve and Suzanne Peck. He enjoys playing sports, video games, cards, and chess.

Pages earn $35 per day while serving in the 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.
