Cashmere student participates in House Page Program

Posted

OLYMPIA – Cashmere Middle School student, Liam Hill, took part in the state House of Representatives Page Program from Feb. 25 to March 1, sponsored by 12th District Rep. Keith Goehner.

"I am grateful to have our grandson, Liam, serve as a page this session so he had the opportunity to observe how the Legislature works. He enjoyed his time in Olympia and is excited to share his experience with other students who may be interested in the page program," said Goehner, R-Dryden. "Students should take advantage of the House Page Program. It is informative and provides a good understanding of how our political process and state government function."

Liam, the son of Joshua and Heidi Hill of Cashmere and grandson of Keith and Lisa Goehner, enjoys playing the clarinet for his school band and local orchestras. He also participates in leadership and church activities.

The House Page Program annually welcomes students aged 14 to 16 from across the state, contingent upon legislative sponsorship and parental and school approval. Pages receive a daily stipend of $65 and may accrue up to 20 hours of community service. Financial assistance is available through the Gina Grant Bull Memorial Legislative Page Scholarship for those needing help with travel and lodging expenses.
