Davenport student serves as page in House of Representatives

Triston Foster traveled to Olympia to page in the House of Representatives last week. Foster, 14, was sponsored by Rep. Joel Kretz, R- Wauconda. The student is an 8th-grader at Christian Heritage and is the daughter of Trea Foster of Davenport.

Each day from March 28 through April 1, Foster attended page school to learn about the legislative process. As part of her duties, she distributed documents and notes to lawmakers and staff on the House floor, as well as around the Capitol campus.

“I'm glad Triston was able to come to Olympia and serve as a page,” said Kretz, one of two Representatives from the 7th District. “I enjoy seeing young people get involved in their government and learn about the different ways she can serve her community.”

In addition to page school, Foster was responsible for distributing official paperwork to members in committees, offices and the floor. She was also able to spend time with her grandmother, 30th District Rep. Katrina Asay. To learn more about the House Page Program visit the  Web site.
