Dye sponsors Kahlotus High School student as page in state House

Kahlotus High School student, Alicia Stanaway, recently traveled to Olympia to serve as a page in the Washington State House of Representatives. She was sponsored by 9th District Rep. Mary Dye.

“It was an honor to sponsor Alicia,” said Dye, R-Pomeroy. “I admire her work ethic, can-do attitude, and commitment to being the best she can be. I hope she enjoyed her time at the Capitol, and wish her the very best of luck in her future endeavors.”

As a page, Alicia learned to navigate the many buildings on the Capitol campus by delivering messages and documents to legislators and staff. She attended page school each day to learn and understand the operations of the Legislature, often directly from the representatives. Her time on campus culminated with a mock hearing amongst her page peers to present policy she authored on an issue area she's passionate about.

Alicia is the daughter of Kadie and Kyle Spanaway. She has a keen interest in the arts, especially drawing. She is also an avid horseback rider.

Each year, students from around the state apply to participate in the legislative page program. Students spent a week attending page school, learning the inner workings of state government and assisting legislators on the House floor. Pages earn $35 a 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. For more information about the House page program, click here.
