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.

β€œIt 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.
