Representative John Lovick (D-Mill Creek) sponsored two Mill Creek area teens as pages at the Washington State House of Representatives the week of April 3, 2017.

The following two students performed a wide variety of responsibilities, from presenting the flags to distributing amendments on the House floor.

Daniel Davis, a student at Jackson High School, is the son of Tracy and Howard Davis of Mill Creek. He enjoys singing, drawing, reading and spending time with his little brother.

Kobe Agyapong, a student at Gateway Middle School, is the son of John and Dina Agyapong of Everett. He enjoys participating in theater, playing sports, and spending time with friends.

In addition to contributing to the efficient operation of the Legislature, pages receive daily civics instruction, draft their own bills, and participate in mock committee hearings.

The Washington State Legislature has recruited young people from across the state to serve as pages since 1891.

According to the Washington State House of Representatives website, “Paging is a paid position. The pay is $35 per day for each day worked.”
