Coupeville student serves as legislative page

Brian Norris served as a legislative page for the House of Representatives in Olympia the week of January 14-18.

Brian attends Coupeville High School and is the son of Joel and Lorene Norris. He was sponsored by state Rep. Norma Smith, R-Clinton.

“Brian is a natural leader,” Smith said. “His interests in international business and economics combined with his terrific work ethic give him the makings of a next generation entrepreneur.”

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 each 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.
