Boehnke sponsors local students as House pages

Earlier this session, Rep. Matt Boehnke, R-Kennewick, sponsored local students Grant Robertson (pictured left) and Johnathon Rexus (pictured right) as pages in the state House.

Robertson attends Chief Joseph Middle School in Richland, while Rexus attends Kamiakin High School in Kennewick. During their week in the House Page Program, the two students attended page school every day to learn about the three branches of state government, the lawmaking process, and the importance of civil discourse. They also carried out a number of duties critical to the efficient operation of the Legislature.

“One of the many things I enjoy about my job is having the opportunity to sponsor local students as pages,” said Boehnke. “I want to thank Grant and Johnathon for their service to the House, and for being willing to spend a week here in Olympia learning how their state government works! I wish them both the best going forward.”

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.
