Julia Jasa, a sophomore from Academy Northwest, spent a week working as a page for the Washington State Senate at the Capitol in Olympia. Jasa was one of 10 students who served as Senate pages for the second week of the 2016 legislative session.
She was sponsored by 20th Legislative District Sen. John Braun.
“I appreciate the work Julia did for us here with the Senate Page Program. I’m glad she got to experience what a day in the life here at the Capitol is all about,” said Braun.
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.
“I liked running around, being with the senators, and being on the floor,” said Julia about her favorite part participating in the Senate Page Program.
Julia enjoys playing volleyball, hanging out with friends and swing dancing.
Julia, 15, is the daughter of Robert and Jocelin Jasa of Winlock.
