Rep. Alex Ybarra sponsors Liahona Preparatory Academy student as House page

Ayden Chapman, a student at Liahona Preparatory Academy, recently traveled to Olympia to serve as a page in the Washington State House of Representatives. He was sponsored by 13th District Rep. Alex Ybarra.

“Ayden is a bright young man with an amazing future in front of him. I’m grateful for his help with my office during the final week of the 2020 session,” said Ybarra, R-Quincy. “Serving as a House page opens the door to a new range of experiences for many students. They get to see the Legislature at work. Many of these kids become lifelong public servants—I hope that holds true for Ayden.”

Ayden is the son of Scott and Tiffany Chapman. His interests include reading, listening to podcasts, government, law, and taking part as an Eagle Scout with the Boy Scouts of America. During his week at the Capitol, he attended page school every day to learn about the three branches of state government, the lawmaking process, and the importance of civil discourse.

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 $35 per day while serving in the program. For more information about the House Page Program, click here.
