Rep. Jacobsen sponsors high school student from Sammamish as House page

Eastlake High School student, Dhruv Setty, recently spent a week at the state Capitol in Olympia to serve as a page in the Washington State House of Representatives. He was sponsored by Rep. Cyndy Jacobsen of the 25th Legislative District.

“It was a pleasure working with Dhruv this week. He did an exceptional job,” said Jacobsen, R-Puyallup. “He is hard-working and attentive, and he has a bright future ahead of him. I wish him all the best.”

In addition to working with Jacobsen as a page, Dhruv attended Legislative Page School every day to learn about the three branches of state government, the lawmaking process, and the importance of civil discourse.

He also had the opportunity to carry out numerous important duties that help the Legislature operate efficiently, including delivering messages and documents to legislators and staff, and assisting on the House floor.

Dhruv, who is 16 years old and from the Lake Washington School District, enjoys a wide variety of activities, including playing basketball, learning about investment banking, and mentoring. He is also particularly interested in financial literacy for high school students.

“The page program is a great way for students to get an up-close look at how the Legislature operates, said Jacobsen. “I look forward to hosting more of these exceptional young men and women in the future.”

Each year, students from around Washington apply to participate in the House Page Program. To become a page, applicants must have a legislative sponsor, be between the ages of 14 and 16, and obtain written permission from their parents and school. Pages earn $65 per day while serving in the program.
