Sunnyside High girl serves as legislative page
Meagen Meyers, a Sunnyside High School freshman, recently served as a page in the Washington State House of Representatives. She was sponsored during her week in Olympia by 15th District Rep. David Taylor.
As a page, Meagen was responsible for delivering messages and documents to legislators in their offices, committee hearings and the House chamber during floor sessions. In addition to her assigned duties, she also continued her regular studies for two hours a day, and attended page school learning about how a bill becomes law.
“The page program is a unique hands-on civics lesson that gives young people a first-hand look at the Legislature and the public-policy process,” said Taylor, R-Moxee. “Meagen did a great job for us, and I think she went away from the experience with a better understanding of state government and how it works.”
Among her extra-curricular activities, she is active in the Sunnyside High School orchestra and drama club.
Meagen is the 15-year-old daughter of Michelle Perry of Sunnyside and Michael Meyers of Moses Lake.
To become a page, a student must have a grade-point average of C+ or better and obtain permission from their parents and school. Applicants must also have a legislative sponsor.
