Haley Tabor serves as page in Washington State Senate

OLYMPIA – Haley Tabor, 15, served as a page in the Washington State Senate during the week of Jan. 14.
Pages are sponsored by the senator from their legislative district. Senator Steve Hobbs, D-Lake Stevens, sponsored Tabor’s week in the Legislature.
“It was a privilege to host Haley at the Capitol this week,” said Hobbs. “I hope that she enjoyed her time with the Legislature.”
The page program offers a hands-on opportunity for students to find out how state government works. The interactive learning experience includes classes focused on topics like budget writing and how a bill becomes a law, which culminates in pages creating their own bills in a mock committee setting. The educational experience is furthered by guest speakers.
“I’ve really loved helping people out and doing my part. That’s really where the joy is in it for me,” said Tabor.
Pages also have the opportunity to work on the Senate floor. Their maroon coats and credentials allow them access to all parts of the Capitol Campus.
Tabor is in 9th grade at Cavelero High School. In her free time she enjoys studying all forms of dance and is currently cast as Mrs. Banks in her school’s production of Mary Poppins.
