Logan O’Day and Sen. Drew MacEwen
OLYMPIA, WASH. – Logan O’Day, an 11th grader at Shelton High School, spent a week working as a page for the Washington State Senate at the Capitol in Olympia. Cushman was one of 16 students who served as a Senate page for the fifth week of the 2024 Legislative session.
O’Day was sponsored by 35th Legislative District Senator Drew MacEwen, who represents Mason County, and parts of Thurston and Kitsap counties.
“It was such an honor to have Logan as a page this week,” said MacEwen. I was thrilled that he chose to be a part of this opportunity and learn more about the process.
The Senate Page Program is an opportunity for Washington students to spend a week working in the Legislature. Students are responsible for transporting documents between offices, as well as delivering messages and mail. Pages spend time in the Senate chamber and attend page school to learn about parliamentary procedure and the legislative process. Students also draft their own bills and engage in a mock session.
“I wanted to become a page because I knew it aligned with my career goals whether I want to go into business or Government,” said O’Day. He also said he knew being able to learn more about the Legislature and how state government is run would be something very meaningful to him.
O’Day, 16, enjoys being a part of DECA and Running Start at his school. He also enjoys going on hikes or riding his bike around the beautiful state of Washington in his free time. He is the son of Jill McKnight.
