OLYMPIA -- Dean Allen, a sophomore from Chelan High School, spent the last week working as a page for the Washington State Senate at the Capitol in Olympia.

Allen was one of 15 students who served as Senate pages for the second week of the 2013 legislative session.

The Senate Page Program is an opportunity for Washington students to spend a week working in the Legislature. Pages, like Allen, are responsible for such tasks as transporting documents between offices as well as delivering messages and mail. Pages spend time in the Senate chamber in addition to attending page school to learn about parliamentary procedure and the legislative process.

"I sure have met a whole bunch of important people this week," Allen said. "I will always remember our mock hearing we held. It was a great hands-on demonstration of how bills are actually passed."

Allen was sponsored by 12th District Sen. Linda Evans Parlette, R-Wenatchee.

"The Senate Page Program gives students a unique, hands-on opportunity to learn about state government," Parlette said. "Dean is a terrific young man, and I'm glad he was able to participate."

Allen enjoys playing basketball and tennis, and pushes himself to achieve as much as he can by participating in the Future Business Leaders of America club. He is the son of Kelly and Doug Allen of Chelan.

Junior high/middle school and high school students who are interested in the Senate Page Program are encouraged to visit
