Faith Eckford-Prossor of Bainbridge Island served as a page with the Washington State Senate in Olympia during the week of Feb. 17.

Eckford-Prossor was sponsored by Sen. Christine Rolfes, D-Kitsap County. “It is great to see young people get excited about government,” Rolfes said. “I am so happy Faith came down to Olympia to help us out.”

Eckford-Prossor learned about being a page from her mom, who had participated in the program when she was in school.

“I really like being on the floor and watching the senators interact,” Eckford-Prossor said. “It was also interesting to see how accessible the senators are to the public.”

Eckford-Prossor, 16, attends Bainbridge High School.
