A Close Look at Government in Action

Elena Fresco, a current freshman at Selah High School, recently had a close look at government in action as she served as a page in the state House of Representatives.  Fresco was sponsored by Rep. Norm Johnson. 

While in the state’s capitol Fresco’s page duties included distributing documents and participating in ceremonial duties.  Additionally, Fresco also attended classes throughout the week to learn about the legislative process.  Students also draft their own bills and engage in a mock session.
