Stevenson student serves as page in Olympia

Representative Chandler and Page: Davis Turpin Junior Davis Turpin, a student at Stevenson High School, paged in the state House of Representatives Feb. 14-19. He was sponsored by his 15th District state representative Bruce Chandler.

“I'm pleased Davis had the opportunity to watch the Legislature in action and learn so much,” said Chandler, R-Granger. “The page program is important because it encourages young people to get involved in their government.”

During his week in Olympia, Turpin attended page school daily to understand the operations and actions of the Legislature. At the end of the week, Turpin wrote and promoted a mock bill addressing lethal injection for prisoners facing the death penalty.

The 16-year-old 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.
