Sehome student serves as Rep. Van Werven’s page in the state House of Representatives
Maddy Reyes, a Sehome High School student from Blaine, served as a page in the Washington State House of Representatives the week of Jan. 28 – Feb. 1. She was sponsored by Rep. Luanne Van Werven, R-Lynden.
“I am pleased Maddy made the effort to come to Olympia and participate in the page program,” Van Werven said. “Her family has a great history of working within the Legislature and it is fantastic she is continuing the tradition.”
Maddy's parents, Joseph and Sarah, met 21 years ago while serving as interns in the state House of Representatives. She is the third generation in the family to work in the Legislature. Maddy is a freshman at Sehome and varsity high school cheerleader. She also cheers competitively at Champion Cheer in Surrey, B.C.
Pages earn $35 per day while serving in the program. To become a page, applicants must have a legislative sponsor, be between the ages of 14 and 16, and obtain written permission from their parents and school.
