Greenacres teen helps Shea in the House
Andrew Matheison, an eighth-grade student at Valley Christian School in Spokane Valley, recently served as a page in the Washington House of Representatives. He was sponsored by Rep. Matt Shea, R-Spokane Valley.
As a page, Andrew observed the Legislature in action and was responsible for delivering messages and documents to legislators in their offices, committee meetings and the House chamber during floor sessions. He also continued his studies for two hours during the day.
To become a page, applicants must have a legislative sponsor and be between the ages of 14 and 16. Additionally, pages are required to obtain written permission from their parents and school.
Andrew is the 14-year-old son of Ken and Brenda Matheison of Greenacres.
