Goehner sponsors Cascade High School student in House Page Program

Cascade High School student Giovanny Rosario traveled to Olympia and served as a page in the state House of Representatives the week of Jan. 20-24. He was sponsored by his 12th District Rep. Keith Goehner.

“It was my pleasure to sponsor Giovanny in the House Page Program. It is important to support young people who take an interest in how our state government works,” said Goehner, R-Dryden. “Giovanny is a bright individual and I hope he stays engaged in state government as he continues his education.”

Giovanny is the son of Alfredo Rosario and Ivonne Trujillo Martinez. He likes to ride bikes and talk politics with his teachers.

Giovanny learned to navigate the many buildings on the Capitol campus while delivering messages and documents to legislators and staff.

The page program is designed to educate students on the legislative process and expose them to the work being done in Olympia during the legislative session. Pages also work on a culminating project and write a piece of legislation, then present the bill in a mock committee hearing to fellow pages.

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.
