For the Reporter

Logan Gust, a sophomore at Kentridge High School, spent a week working as a page for the Washington State Senate at the Capitol in Olympia. Gust was one of 28 students who served as Senate pages for the sixth week of the 2018 legislative session.

He was sponsored by Sen. Joe Fain, R-Auburn, who represents South King County including Auburn, Covington, Kent, Renton and Federal Way.

The Senate Page Program provides an opportunity for Washington students to spend a week working at the Legislature. Students transport documents between offices, as well as deliver messages and mail. Pages spend time in the Senate chamber and attend page school to learn about parliamentary procedure and the legislative process. Students also draft their own bills and engage in a mock session.

“I became a page because I thought it would be fun to learn about the government and how it works,” Gust said.

His favorite part of the program was getting to meet new people and go on the senate floor.

Gust enjoys skiing, wrestling, ranching and FFA.

Gust, 16, is the son of Michael and Kaarin of Renton.
