Holly Nelson, an eighth-grade student at Riverside Middle School in Chattaroy, recently served as a page in the Washington House of Representatives. She was sponsored by Rep. Matt Shea, R-Spokane Valley.

Pages also participate in various ceremonial tasks, such as presenting flags before floor sessions. Along with her assigned duties, she also continued her regular schoolwork and attended page school to learn about state government.

Holly enjoys playing varsity volleyball and basketball. She is the 14-year-old-daughter of Gary Nelson and Heidi Sue Coldsnow of Elk, Washington.
