Rep. Carolyn Eslick sponsors homeschool student as House page

Kyrie Kondracki, a homeschool student, recently traveled to Olympia to serve as a page in the state House of Representatives. She was sponsored by 39th District Rep. Carolyn Eslick.

“It was an honor to sponsor Kryie as a House page. She is a delightful young woman. I hope she enjoyed her time here,” said Eslick, R-Sultan. “Many students who participate in the page program become lifelong civic contributors. Maybe Kyrie will return one day as an elected official. I wish her all the best in her future endeavors.”

Kyrie is the daughter of Aaron and Tracy Kondracki. In her spare time, the 16-year-old enjoys playing piano, gardening, dancing, and spending time with her family and friends.

During her time at the state Capitol, Kyrie attended page school every day to understand the operations and actions of the Legislature. Her time in Olympia culminated with the presentation of a mock bill to a “committee” of her fellow students.

“The page school was good for all levels. Anybody who attends can get something out of it. I really liked learning about how state government works. There is so much more to the process than what you see on television,” said Kyrie, “Meeting the representatives and getting to talk to them was great! There isn’t as much drama as most people think. Everyone works together to get things done. “

Each year, students from around the state apply to participate in the House 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.

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.  For more information about the House Page Program go to or to learn more about the Gina Grant Bull Memorial Legislative Page Scholarship program go to
