Student serves as Senate page
Kimberly Butler, a student at Pioneer Middle School in DuPont, recently completed working as a page for the state Senate. She was sponsored by Sen. Steve O’Ban, R-University Place.
Pages deliver documents, messages and mail. They spend time in the Senate and House chambers and learn about parliamentary procedure and legislative processes.
