Rep. Brad Klippert sponsors Grapeview student as page in House of Representatives

Cameron Taylor, a student homeschooled in Grapeview, traveled to Olympia this week to serve as a page in the state House of Representatives. He was sponsored by 8th District Rep. Brad Klippert.

“It was an honor to sponsor Cameron. He is a great young man and I look forward to his future achievements,” said Klippert, R-Kennewick. “The page process is an important way to teach civic lessons to the next generation. I hope Cameron enjoyed the experience. I am grateful for his service.”

As a page, Cameron learned to navigate the many buildings on the Capitol campus. He delivered messages and documents to legislators and staff. He also attended page school each day to understand the operations and actions of the Legislature. His time in Olympia culminated with a presentation of a mock bill in front of his fellow pages.

Cameron loves to spend time in the outdoors playing soccer or kayaking the many waterways around Grapeview. He also enjoys listening to music and playing video games. He is the son of Glenn and Kim Taylor.

Each year, students from around the state, like Cameron, apply to participate in the legislative page program. Students spend a week attending page school, learning the inner workings of state government and assisting legislators on the House floor. Pages earn $35 per day while serving in the program.
