Dent sponsors student in the House Page Program

Sponsored by her 13th District Rep. Tom Dent, home-schooled student Caroline Henninger spent a week in Olympia, Feb. 10-14, as a page in the state House of Representatives.

“I am always happy to sponsor the young people from our district in the House Page Program. I am grateful for Caroline's service during her week in Olympia. I hope she will continue to find ways to be involved in the legislative process in the future,” said Dent, R-Moses Lake. “The program is an excellent way for students to learn how our state government operates. I trust she had a great time, and made lasting friendships with the other pages.”

Caroline in the daughter of Bryan and Nancy Henninger. She is also the granddaughter of my good friend former Sen. Harold Hochstatter.

During her week in Olympia, Caroline attended page school every day to understand the operations and actions of the Legislature. She learned to navigate the many buildings on the Capitol campus while delivering messages and documents to legislators and staff.

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.
