Zander Kahuhu, freshmen at Todd Beamer High School, spent a week working as a page for the Washington State Senate at the Capitol in Olympia. Zander was one of 18 students who served as Senate pages for the third week of the 2018 legislative session.
He was sponsored by 30th Legislative District Sen. Mark Miloscia.
“I really enjoyed sponsoring Zander and meeting him while he paged for the Senate this week,” Sen. Miloscia said. “The Page Program is a great way for students to learn about how the Legislature operates and see it in action.”
The Senate Page Program is an opportunity for Washington students to spend a week working in the Legislature. Students are responsible for transporting documents between offices, as well as delivering 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.
Zander said that “going on the Senate floor and seeing how they run bills, [do] rollcall votes and voice votes, walking around the floor talking to different senators” was his favorite part.
Zander enjoys politics, animals and sports.
Zander, 15, is the son of Leonardo and Diana Cella of Federal Way.
