Lacey youth serves as legislative page
Freshman Myranda Paquette, a North Thurston High School student, paged in the state House of Representatives March 28 through April 1. She was sponsored by 25th District Rep. Hans Zeiger. Paquette, 15, is the daughter of Michael and Danielle Paquette of Lacey.
“It is an honor to have Myranda at the Capitol helping with the legislative process. She is a delightful and smart young lady,” said Zeiger, R-Puyallup. “Her commitment to learning about our system of government is commendable.”
During her week in Olympia, Paquette attended page school daily to understand the operations and actions of the Legislature. At the end of the week, Paquette wrote and promoted a mock bill addressing poor science and math test scores.
The student also served an important role in the Legislature delivering documents to legislators and staff on the floor of the House and throughout the capitol campus.
Each week, students 14- to 16-years-old from across the state serve in the legislative page program. They must have a legislative member as a sponsor, as well as permission from their school and parents. To learn more about the page program, visit the Web site.
