Rep Smith sponsors student in House page program
Mary Currall served as a page in the House of Representatives April 11-15. Currall, 16, was sponsored by Rep. Norma Smith, R-Clinton. The student is a home-schooled 10th grader and is the daughter of Lisa and Ed Currall of Lacey.
Each day, Currall attended page school to learn about the legislative process. As part of her duties, she distributed documents and notes to lawmakers and staff on the House floor, as well as around the Capitol campus.
“It was wonderful having Mary in Olympia last week serving as a page and learning about the legislative process,” said Smith, one of two representatives for the 10th District.
“Mary is gracious, intelligent and gifted,” said Smith. “Her contribution and service to the legislative process was a great help, along with the other terrific students who served us so effectively.”
Students between the ages of 14 and 16 who are interested in the page program must have parent permission, acceptable grades and a legislative sponsor. To learn more about the House Page Program, visit the Web site.
