Volz welcomes Spokane High School student as House Page

Rep. Mike Volz sponsored Spokane International Academy high school student Gydance Brown for a week in Olympia, recently, as a page in the state House of Representatives.

“It was great working with Gydance as a page last week,” said Volz, R-Spokane. “It was a pleasure to sponsor her. She is smart and talented and I’m confident she has a bright future ahead of her. I hope she enjoyed her time in Olympia and that she continues to take in an interest in state government and public service.”

Gydance, who is 15 years old, is the daughter of Allonda and Jeromy Brown. Her hobbies and interests include hiking, movies, and family time.

During her week in Olympia, Gydance delivered messages and documents to legislators and staff in the many buildings on the Capitol campus. She also participated in a mock committee hearing and attended page school every day to understand the operations and actions of the Legislature.

Pages earn $65 per day while serving in the program and can also earn up to 20 hours of community service. 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.

Applicants who need financial assistance for the expense of traveling and staying in Olympia may also apply for the Gina Grant Bull Memorial Legislative Page Scholarship, which helps to offset expenses. To learn more, go to the Gina Grant Bull Scholarship page.
