Homeschool teen serves as Rep. Vicki Kraft’s page in state House of Representatives

Homeschool student Colin Noorlun spent a week in Olympia paging for the Washington State House of Representatives. He was sponsored by 17th District Rep. Vicki Kraft, R-Vancouver.

Colin observed the Legislature in action and was responsible for delivering messages and documents to state lawmakers in their offices, committee meetings and the House chamber. He also attended Legislative Page School during the day.

“Colin was a big help, he worked hard during his week at the Legislature,” said Kraft. “Paging is a great opportunity for young people to learn about state government. He is a bright young man with a big future. I was honored to sponsor him.”

Colin, 16, is the son of Nathan and Jamie Noorlun. When he is not is school, Colin's favorite pastime is playing Frisbee and working at the local Trading Post.

“I really enjoyed working on the floor and seeing everything going on and all the errands you get to do,” said Colin. “I am looking forward to working at the state Capitol someday as an intern or legislative assistant. Thank you Rep. Kraft, it means a lot that you sponsored me as your page.”

Each year, students from around the state apply to participate in the Legislative page program. 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 to 16, and obtain written permission from their parents and school.
