Senate Page Program provides an opportunity for Washington students to spend a week working at the Legislature…
Allie Davis of Colville, an 11th-grader at Colville Senior High School, spent a week working as a page for the Washington State Senate at the Capitol in Olympia. Allie was one of 29 students who served as Senate pages for the sixth week of the 2019 legislative session.
She was sponsored by 7th Legislative District Sen. Shelly Short.
“Allie had a great week,” Short said. “She was an outstanding page and a friend to everyone in her group.”
The Senate Page Program provides an opportunity for Washington students to spend a week working at the Legislature. Students transport documents between offices, as well as deliver messages and mail. Pages spend time in the Senate chamber and attend page school to learn about parliamentary procedure and the legislative process. Students also draft their own bills and engage in a mock session.
Davis said she highly recommends other students take advantage of the page program.
“Work hard and to the best of your ability,” Davis said. “Understand you’re going to work with people who are different from you, and expect to work together to solve problems.”
Davis, 16, enjoys reading and hiking. She is the daughter of Aaron Davis and Jerrie Newport of Colville.
