Rep. Michelle Caldier sponsors South Kitsap High School student as House page

Quinn Meyers, a sophomore at South Kitsap High School, traveled to Olympia and served as a page in the state House from Feb. 29 to March 4. He was sponsored by his 26th District Rep. Michelle Caldier, R-Port Orchard.

Quinn is the son of Jerry and Theresa Meyers. He is interested in international relations, history and politics, and is a candidate for the International Baccalaureate program. He also competes with the South Kitsap Knowledge Bowl team. Additionally, Quinn is involved in sports, participating in cross country, track and field and swimming.

As part of his page duties, Quinn learned to navigate the many buildings on the Capitol campus while delivering messages and documents to legislators and staff. He participated in opening ceremonies and assisted representatives on the House floor.

“The page program is a great way for students like Quinn to experience their state government firsthand. It was an honor to sponsor him as a page,” said Caldier. “I hope he enjoyed his week and made lasting friendships. I appreciate his service very much.”

Along with his page duties, Quinn attended page school every day to understand the operations and actions of the Legislature. As part of a culminating project, he introduced a mock bill that would require a mental health evaluation before new gun purchases.

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. Pages earn $35 per day while serving in the program.
