Rep. Vick sponsors student from Battle Ground School District as House page

River HomeLink student, Wilson Grant, recently traveled from his home in Battle Ground to the state Capitol in Olympia to serve as a page in the Washington State House of Representatives. Rep. Brandon Vick sponsored Wilson.

Wilson, who is 15 years old, enjoys several activities outside of school, including Boy Scouts, backpacking, theater, piano, reading, and video games.

During his week serving as a page, Wilson attended Legislative Page School every day to learn about the three branches of state government, the lawmaking process, and the importance of civil discourse. He also had the opportunity to carry out numerous important duties that help the Legislature operate efficiently.

“I really enjoyed working with Wilson this week,” said Vick, R-Vancouver. “He was energetic, thoughtful and hard-working. I'm grateful for his dedicated work in the House and appreciate his willingness to come to Olympia and participate in this great program. I wish him the best in school going forward, and in all of his other endeavors.”

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.
