Helen Neuroth, a student at Reeves Middle School, served as a page last week in the Washington State House of Representatives. Sponsored by State Rep. Strom Peterson (D-Edmonds), Helen is the daughter of Kristen Maring of Olympia and Mike Neuroth of Lummi Island. Pages assume a wide variety of responsibilities, from presenting the flags to distributing amendments on the House floor. Pages support the efficient operation of the Legislature while also receiving daily civics instruction, drafting their own bills, and participating in mock committee hearings.
