Josie Howard, a sophomore at Kamiak High School in Mukilteo, served as a page with the Washington State Senate the week of March 6. Sen. Marko Liias (D-Everett) sponsored her week at the Legislature.
The page program offers a week of interactive learning about how state government works. Pages get to sit in on committee hearings, watch floor debates, and deliver papers for Senate staff. Howard applied because of her past political involvement, and said her favorite part of the program was meeting students who share her interests.
