Dye sponsors Pasco, Othello teens as legislative pages

Two young people from Adams and Franklin counties were recently sponsored as legislative pages by Rep. Mary Dye, R-Pomeroy, in the Washington State House of Representatives.

McKenzie Fultz, 14, is a student at Othello High School. Matthew Haddick, 16, lives in Pasco and is homeschooled.

Pages are responsible for delivering messages and documents to state lawmakers in their offices, committee meetings and the House chamber. McKenzie and Matthew also attended Legislative Page School during the week they worked at the Capitol.

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 $35 per day while serving in the program.

McKenzie is the daughter of Gregg and Tiffaney Fultz of Othello. She enjoys soccer and is president of her class.

Matthew is the son of Tim and Alice Haddick of Pasco. He plays piano, reads history books and enjoys sports.
