Rep. Chris Corry sponsors Eisenhower High School student as House page

Eisenhower High School student, Delaney Russell, recently traveled to Olympia to serve as a page in the state House of Representatives. She was sponsored by 14th Legislative District Rep. Chris Corry.

“It was an honor to sponsor Delaney as a House page. She was a big help to my office.  I hope she enjoyed her time here,” said Corry, R-Yakima. “Perhaps Delaney will return to Olympia someday as a state legislator or other elected official. This experience has a way of inspiring students to stay involved in government as adults.”

In her spare time, Delaney, a Yakima resident, plays golf and participates in 4H. The 16-year-old is the daughter of Dean and Kim Russell.

As part of her page duties, Delaney learned to navigate the many buildings on the Capitol campus while delivering messages and documents to legislators and staff. She also attended page school every day to understand the inner workings of the Legislature.

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. For more information about the House Page Program go to leg.wa.gov/House/Pages/HousePageProgram.aspx.
