Gloria Boieriu, a junior from Columbia River High school, spent a week working as a page for the Washington State Senate at the Capitol in Olympia. Boieriu was one of 10 students who served as Senate pages for the second week of the 2016 legislative session.
She was sponsored by 18th Legislative District Sen. Ann Rivers.
“Gloria is bright young woman and she has a promising future ahead of her. It was a pleasure to have her here in the Capitol for the second week of session,” said Rivers.
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.
“My favorite part was meeting Senator Ann Rivers,” she said about participating in the Senate Page Program. “She cares about the people and wants them to be in the best care possible. Senator Rivers represents them very well and tries to see both sides of the argument,” added Gloria about her thoughts on Senator Rivers.
She plans on going to University of Washington to study medicine to become a family physician.
Gloria enjoys singing for Romanian Baptist Church of Portland, participates in Art club, Spanish club, History club, Red Cross club, and Outdoors club.
Gloria, 16, is the daughter of Ovidiu and Mariana Boieriu of Vancouver, WA.
