2 Poulsbo students serve as pages in state Senate
OLYMPIA — Andrew Brandt and Brendan Ryder, both of Poulsbo, served as pages in the state Senate in Olympia the week of Feb. 3.
They were sponsored by Sen. Christine Rolfes, D-Poulsbo.
“It was wonderful to have such sharp kids helping us out in Olympia this week,” Rolfes said. “I’m so glad they were able to come down and get a bit of first-hand experience with their state government.”
Andrew and Brendan are homeschooled together and heard of the page program through a civics education class they attend. “Our teacher gave us an opportunity to sign up for this,” Andrew said. “I thought it would be a fun experience.”
When asked about his favorite experience of the week, Brendan said, “The floor was cool, but the [committee] hearings were better — it was more personal.”
Andrew’s hobbies include guitar and Tae Kwon Do, and he hopes to join the Army after graduation. Brendan enjoys percussion and baseball, and is in the Boy Scouts.
