Rep. Jim Walsh sponsors homeschool student as House page

Alex Snow, a Montesano homeschool student, traveled to Olympia recently to serve as a page in the state House of Representatives. He was sponsored by his 19th District Rep. Jim Walsh.

“It was an honor to sponsor Alex as a page,” said Walsh. “The experience of working at the state Capitol and learning about the legislative process often inspires students to a lifetime of civic engagement. Perhaps one day Alex will serve in local or state government. I wish him all the best in his future endeavors. ”

Alex, 15, is the son of Jeff and Teresa Snow. He enjoys going to church, watching football and hip hop dance. While working as a House page, he attended school every day to understand the operations and actions of the Legislature.

Each year, students from around the state apply to participate in the House 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 and 16, and obtain written permission from their parents and school.
