Olympian Local For Senate Page Program
OLYMPIA -Min Kyu Kim, a 10th-grader at Charles Wright Academy, took time away from his studies to spend the week participating in the Senate Page Program at the Washington State Legislature. He was sponsored by Sen. Tim Sheldon of the 35th Legislative District.
Min Kyu was one of 16 students ages 14 to 16 who took part in the program during the first week of the 2014 legislative session. Pages deliver mail, run errands, present the flag and learn parliamentary procedure firsthand. Students also try their hand at drafting a bill and engage in a mock session.
Kim was a great addition to the page program. I enjoyed getting to know him” responded Sheldon, D-Potlatch, when asked about the 16-year-old Kim.
“I met a lot of new people and really got to see how the senators worked,” Min Kyu reflected when talking about his time in the program.
Min Kyu is interested in going to college after graduating from high school and is looking into several different schools including Stanford University, where he said he would like to pursue a degree in business and/or economics. Some of his hobbies include playing tennis, snowboarding, and working with computers.
Q is the son of Jin bok and Emmi Kim of Olympia.
