Jackson Humphrey serves as House page for Rep. Jim Walsh

Boistfort Elementary School student Jackson Humphrey traveled to Olympia last week to serve as a page in the state House of Representatives. He was sponsored by 19th District Rep. Jim Walsh.

“Jackson worked hard during his time at the state Capitol,” said Walsh. “He is an intelligent young man with a bright future ahead of him. I hope this experience inspires him to a lifelong commitment to public service.”

Jackson is the son of Jason and Katherine Humphrey. When he is not in school, he likes to work on his family's farm. While he was in Olympia he attended page school every day to understand the operations and actions of the Legislature.

Each year, students from around the state apply to participate in the legislative page program. Students spend a week attending page school, learning the inner workings of state government and assisting legislators on the House floor. Pages earn $35 per day while serving in the program. To become a page, applicants must have a legislative sponsor, be between the ages of 14 to 16, and obtain written permission from their parents and school.
