Sen. Darlene Fairley sponsors Grace Brennan as legislative page

Monday, February 22, 2010

 Sen. Darlene Fairley, D-Lake Forest Park, sponsored Grace Brennan as a Senate page in Olympia for a week in January. Grace, 14, is an eighth grader at St. Luke School in Shoreline.

Students from schools across Washington arrive in Olympia every week to serve in the Senate Page Program at the Washington State Legislature. Senate pages carry mail between offices and relay messages to the Senate floor. Pages attend page school while working at the legislature. Pages also participate in mock hearings, write their own bills, and engage in debates.

Grace is her class's president and enjoys soccer, speech, music, boating skiing and mountain climbing.

Page positions provide valuable civic and employment experiences for Washington state youth. Additional information on becoming a Senate page is available at on the Senate website.
