Olivia Wisont, a ninth grader at Northshore Junior High School, recently spent a week at the Capitol in Olympia working as a page for the Washington State Senate. Olivia was one of 17 students who served as Senate pages for the 11th week of the 2017 legislative session.

She was sponsored by 45th Legislative District Sen. Dino Rossi.

“It was great that Olivia could help out with some of the work we do down here in Olympia,” Rossi said. “I’m glad that she enjoyed the experience.”

The Senate Page Program is an opportunity for Washington students to spend a week working in the Legislature. Students are responsible for transporting documents between offices, as well as delivering 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.

“I thought it was a really cool experience,” Olivia said. “It’s not something that everybody gets to do.”

Olivia enjoys track, cross country, and band.

Olivia, age 15, is the daughter of Karen and Gregory Wisont of Redmond.
