Two Youth Councilmembers to serve as pages in the State Legislature for Senator Frockt

Tuesday, March 31, 2015

The Lake Forest Park Youth Council is proud to announce that two of its members, Christopher King and Robyn Muilenburg, have been selected for the coveted opportunity of paging in the Washington State Senate.

Paging is an excellent opportunity for young people in Washington to learn about the political process through firsthand experience in Olympia working with the legislature. Pages are chosen to perform tasks that assist the legislature by allowing Senators and Representatives to directly focus on legislation. In addition, pages attend two hours of “page school” every day, where they gain invaluable experience about our democratic system and the legislative processes.

Robyn and Christopher learned about this opportunity through a presentation to the entire Youth Council courtesy of Lake Forest Park City Council Member Hilda Thompson.

Robyn and Christopher will be paging through the office of Senator David Frockt. Senator Frockt represents the 46th Legislative District (North Seattle, Kenmore, Lake Forest Park) and sits on the Higher Education, Health Care, and Trade and Economic Development committees.

Robyn Muilenburg

Robyn is a sophomore at Shorecrest High School, and has served on Youth Council for two years. She is passionate about academics, and she swims for the Cascade swim team and participates in Lake Forest Park’s Youth Court.

Robyn is overjoyed to serve as a senate page, stating “I am very excited to serve as a Page in the Washington State Senate. I'm grateful to have learned about this opportunity through Youth Council and cannot wait to walk through the state capitol building for the first time.” 

Christopher King

Christopher is a freshman at Shorecrest and joined Youth Council this fall. He is passionate about aviation and government, and plays tennis for the Shorecrest Varsity team. He is also an active Boy Scout and has nearly attained the Eagle Scout rank.

He is also excited for the opportunity to page, stating “The opportunity of being able to page for the Senate down in Olympia will give me experiences like no other, where I will get an incredible insight on how our government works and how change is possible."
