Island County teen pages for Rep. Norma Smith
Brian Norris served as a legislative page for the House of Representatives in Olympia the week of January 14 -18. Brian attends Coupeville High School and is the son of Joel and Lorene Norris. He was sponsored by Rep. Norma Smith, R-Clinton.
“Brian is a natural leader,” Smith said. “His interests in international business and economics combined with his terrific work ethic give him the makings of a next generation entrepreneur.”
Each year, students from around the state apply to participate in the legislative page program. Students spend a week attending page school, learning the inner workings of state government and assisting legislators on the House floor. 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. For more information about the legislative page program, visit: http://www,.leg.wa.gov/House/PageInternProgram/housepageprogram.htm.
