Vincent Wilson, a student at Lakeside School, served as a page this week in the Washington State House of Representatives.

Sponsored by state Rep. Ruth Kagi (D-Seattle), Vincent is the son of Fatima Lim-Wilson and Adrian Wilson of Shoreline.

Pages perform a wide variety of responsibilities, from presenting the flags to distributing amendments on the House floor.

In addition to contributing to the efficient operation of the Legislature, pages receive daily civics instruction, draft their own bills, and participate in mock committee hearings.
