My husband and I would like to thank Sen. Jim Honeyford for sponsoring our daughter, Mattalynn, as a Senate page the week of March 7-11.
Mattalynn not only learned a lot about Washington state law, but also really enjoyed the time she spent in Olympia.
The page program is an invaluable program for the youth in our state and I really hope that the program continues in the future so that more of our youth can experience it. The pages learn so much about state law and how our state government works that it would be a shame if this program were to end.
Again, thank you Sen. Honeyford for selecting my daughter as your page this past week. I would also like to thank the DeBord's for housing and caring for my daughter.
