Volz sponsors Lakeside Middle School student as legislative page in state House

From Feb. 11 to 15, Lakeside Middle School student Cassi Davis served as a legislative page in the Washington State House of Representatives. She was sponsored by her 6th District Rep. Mike Volz, R-Spokane.

As a page, Cassi was responsible for delivering messages and documents to state lawmakers in their offices, committee meetings and the House chamber. She also attended Legislative Page School during the day, where she learned more about the legislative process.

“While paging at the Capitol, I got to meet amazing people from around the state, work with the representatives, and participate in making the state a better place,” said Cassi. “I loved the experience and would enjoy doing it again.”

Cassi plays the alto saxophone, and enjoys basketball, volleyball and softball.

Volz said he was impressed with Cassi's professionalism and enthusiasm while serving as a page.

“Pages serve an important role for the Legislature, and it's always great when our pages bring their passion to the Capitol during their week-long service,” he said. “I hope this is just one of the many public service endeavors in Cassi's future, and I wish her all the best with the remainder of the school year.”

Each year, students from around the state apply to participate in the House Page 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. Pages earn $35 per day while serving in the program. For more information about the House Page Program, click here.

The 2019 legislative session began Jan. 14 and is scheduled to last 105 consecutive days.
