Smith sponsors Coupeville Middle School student as page in state House
Coupeville Middle School student Noelle Daigneault recently traveled to Olympia to serve as a page in the state House of Representatives. She was sponsored by 10th District Rep. Norma Smith, R-Clinton.
Noelle is a talented volleyball player, currently playing on a USA Junior Olympic team. In her free time, she enjoys playing musical instruments and reading.
“I am so impressed by Noelle. She’s smart and talented, and the fact she would come to Olympia to serve as a page for a week speaks volumes,” said Smith. “It’s so important our young people get involved in civics, which is why the House Page Program is invaluable. I want to thank Noelle for her service, and wish her the best of luck in everything she chooses to pursue going forward.”
As part of her page duties, Noelle learned to navigate the many buildings on the Capitol campus while delivering messages and documents to legislators and staff. She also attended page school every day to understand the inner workings of the Legislature.
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. For more information about the House Page Program, click here.
