Payton Arnett, an eighth-grader at Buena Vista Seventh-day Adventist School in Auburn, spent a week working as a page for the state Senate at the Capitol in Olympia.

Arnett was one of 32 students who served as Senate pages for the final week of the legislative session.

He was sponsored by Sen. Joe Fain, R-Auburn, who represents South King County including Auburn, Covington, Kent, Renton and Federal Way.

The Senate Page Program provides an opportunity for Washington students to spend a week working at the Legislature. Students transport documents between offices, as well as deliver messages and mail. Pages spend time in the Senate chamber and attend page school to learn about parliamentary procedure and the legislative process. Students also draft their own bills and engage in a mock session.

Arnett joined the page program because he wanted to learn how the government works and what the page program was like. He said that his favorite part was “all of the unique experiences and learning opportunities.”

Arnett is the 14-year-old son of Steve and Brigitte Arnett of Covington.

Students interested in the Senate Page Program are encouraged to visi leg.wa.gov.
