Spokane students serve as legislative pages for Rep. Matt Shea

Four students from The Oaks Classical Christian Academy in Spokane recently served as pages in the Washington State House of Representatives. They were sponsored by Rep. Matt Shea, R-Spokane Valley.

Brooke Modderman, David Swisher, Jamie Munch and Emily Munch all served their week together at the state Capitol in Olympia.

Paging presents students with a unique educational opportunity to participate in the legislative process. Their duties vary from ceremonial tasks, such as presenting the flags, to operational chores like distributing amendments during legislative sessions.

Brooke, 14, is the daughter of Robert and Linda Modderman of Spokane Valley. David, 15, is the son of Jennifer Swisher, Spokane. Jamie, 16, and Emily, 15, are the daughters of Mike Munch and Megan Baker, both of Spokane.

To serve as a page for the House of Representatives, a student must have permission from a parent or guardian and the school, be sponsored by a current member of the House of Representatives, and be at least 14 years of age and not have reached his or her 17th birthday.
