Rep. Carolyn Eslick sponsors Sultan Middle School student as House page

Sultan Middle School student Samuel Inman Jr., 14, traveled to Olympia last week to page for the Washington State House of Representatives.  Samuel was sponsored by 39th District Rep. Carolyn Eslick, R-Sultan.

Samuel observed the Legislature in action and was responsible for delivering messages and documents to state lawmakers in their offices, committee meetings, and the House chamber. Samuel says he enjoyed his time at the Legislature and would recommend the experience to his fellow classmates.

“My favorite part of working at the Legislature was going to the offices, delivering messages and meeting the legislators and staff,” said Samuel.

Samuel Jr. is the son of Samuel and Christine Inman. While in Olympia, he attended the Legislative Page School and participated in mock committee meetings while learning about the inner-workings of state government.

“I can’t say enough about the House page program. It really is a wonderful experience for young people. Samuel was a big help to our office. I’m glad he got to come and learn about state government,” said Eslick. “The more involved students are now, the more likely they will remain politically engaged adults. I’d like to thank Samuel for his work in Olympia. I’m sure he will do well in all his future endeavors.”

House pages earn $35 per day while serving at the Legislature. To become a page, applicants must have a legislative sponsor, be between the ages of 14 to 16, and obtain written permission from their parents and school.
