Skyridge student serves as page for state senator

Logan Kesting, an eighth-grader at Skyridge Middle School, spent a week working as a page for Sen. Don Benton of Vancouver.

Camas eighth-grader Logan Kesting spent a week working as a page for the Washington State Senate in Olympia.

Kesting, who attends Skyridge Middle School, was one of 19 students who served as Senate pages for the third week of the 2016 legislative session.

He was sponsored by 17th Legislative District Sen. Don Benton.

“Logan is a bright young man and did a wonderful job as a page for us during this short session,” said Benton. (R-Vancouver).

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 definitely recommend it if they are debating whether to do it or not,” Kesting said. “It was a very unique experience.”

Kesting plays basketball, ice hockey and the trombone in his school’s band.

He is the son of Chris Kesting and Tiffany Zastera of Camas.
