Quincy high school student serves as page in the state House
Tyler Wurl, a student of Quincy High School served as a legislative page for the state House of Representatives the week of Jan. 16 – 20. He was sponsored by his 12th District Rep. Cary Condotta.
“I am pleased Tyler made the effort to come to Olympia and get a firsthand look at how the Legislature works,” said Condotta R-Wenatchee. “It is essential students stay engaged with the political process. We are at a very important time in politics at all levels and the more students stay involved, the better understanding they will have of the process and issues.”
Tyler is the son of Todd and Michele Wurl. He plays football and is in the Boy Scouts. As part of his page duties, Tyler learned to navigate the many buildings on the Capitol Campus and delivered messages and documents to legislators and staff. Each day, Tyler attended page school for several hours to understand the operations and actions of the Legislature.
Each year, students from around the state apply to participate in the legislative 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, visit: http://www.leg.wa.gov/House/Pages/HousePageProgram.aspx.
