Yakima teen serves as House page for Rep. Chris Corry

Emily Walker, a 15-year-old student from Yakima, recently served as a legislative page in the Washington State House of Representatives. She was sponsored by 14th District Rep. Chris Corry.

“Emily was a tremendous help to our office,” said Corry. “She worked hard during her stay at the state Capitol. I hope she walks away confident in her newfound citizenship skills. I wish her all the best in her future endeavors!”

Some of Emily's responsibilities included delivering messages and documents to state lawmakers on the House floor, in committee meetings, and in their offices. She also attended Legislative Page School.

Emily is the daughter of James and Melissa Walker. She is a student at Kingsway Private Academy. Emily enjoys dancing and would like to someday own a small cosmetology business.

To become a page in the House of Representatives, a student must have permission from a parent or guardian and school, be sponsored by a member of the House of Representatives, and be between 14 and 16 years old.
