Puyallup teen helps Rep. Chambers in the House

Chezney Farr, a 15-year-old student at Rogers High School in Puyallup, recently served as a page in the Washington State House of Representatives. She was sponsored by Rep. Kelly Chambers, R-Puyallup.

Paging presents students with a unique educational opportunity to participate in the legislative process. As a legislative page, Chezney’s duties varied from ceremonial tasks such as presenting the flags to operational chores, like delivering messages and documents to legislators in their offices, committee meetings and the House chamber during floor sessions. She also spent two hours each day in a classroom setting learning about the Legislature, including how to write a bill.

“It was fun to see the excitement in Chezney’s eyes as she went through the page program and was immersed in the civic education program,” said Chambers.

Traditionally, pages serve the Legislature for a week and then return home to share their experiences and observations with others in an effort to provide a better understanding of the legislative process. To become a page, applicants must have a legislative sponsor and be between the ages of 14 and 17.

Chezney is involved with her local youth group. She also enjoys babysitting, spending time with family, paddle boarding, camping, volleyball and hiking.

Chezney is the daughter of Mike Farr of Ephrata, and Joy Churchill of Puyallup.
