Justin Krejcha, a junior at Mountain View High School in Vancouver, spent a week working as a page for the Washington State Senate at the Capitol in Olympia. Justin was one of 26 students who served as Senate pages for the seventh week of the 2016 legislative session.
He was sponsored by 18th Legislative District Sen. Ann Rivers, Senate majority whip.
“I enjoy getting to meet all the bright young scholars through our page program, so I was more than happy to sponsor Justin to be a part of our team for this important week of session,” said Rivers, R-La Center.
The Senate Page Program is an opportunity for Washington students to spend a week working in the Legislature. Students are responsible for transporting documents between offices, as well as delivering messages and mail. Pages spend time in the Senate chamber and attend page school to learn about parliamentary procedure and the legislative process. Students also draft their own bills and engage in a mock session.
“Make the most of your time here and get as much done as possible; you’re only here for a week!” said Justin about what his advice would be to any upcoming pages.
Justin enjoys volunteering, debate, and being in Boy Scouts.
Justin, 16, is the son of John and Karen Krejcha of Vancouver.
