Rep. Norm Johnson sponsors Yakima teen as legislative page
Aimee Joiner, a 14-year-old homeschooled student from Yakima, recently served as a page in the Washington State House of Representatives. She was sponsored by Rep. Norm Johnson, R-Yakima.
As part of her page duties, Aimee learned to navigate the many buildings on the Capitol campus and delivered messages and documents to legislators and staff.
Each year, students from around the state apply to participate in the legislative page program. Students spend a week attending page school, learning the inner workings of state government and assisting legislators on the House floor. Pages earn $35 per day while serving in the program.
To serve as a page for the House of Representatives, a student must have permission from a parent or guardian and school, be sponsored by a current member of the House of Representatives, and be at least 14 years of age and not have reached his or her 17th birthday.
Aimee was recently named valedictorian of the 2015 TeenPact Christian Leadership Conference for first-time students.
Aimee is the daughter of Blake and Traci Joiner of Yakima. Her grandparents are Dave and Sandy Purcell, and Bob and Linda Joiner.
