Stambaugh sponsors Tacoma student as page in state House

Fifteen-year-old homeschool student Daffyd Tyler recently traveled to Olympia to serve as a page in the state House of Representatives. She was sponsored by her 25th District Rep. Melanie Stambaugh, R-Puyallup.

Daffyd is the daughter of Matthew and Patricia Tyler, and the youngest of four siblings. She is a Cadet Staff Sergeant in the Civil Air Patrol, a student glider pilot, an assistant Aikido instructor, and is also working toward earning her Girl Scout Gold Award.

“Daffyd is driven to make a difference in this world,” said Stambaugh. “Service has been a key part of her life, and I admire her desire to serve our country in the Air Force. I want to thank Daffyd for her hard work here at the Capitol, and wish her the very best going forward.”

While serving as a House page, Daffyd attended page school, delivered messages and documents to legislators and staff, and fulfilled other tasks critical to the efficient operation of the Legislature.

Each year, students from around the state apply to participate in the House Page Program. To become a page, applicants must have a legislative sponsor, be between the ages of 14 and 16, and obtain written permission from their parents and school. Pages earn $35 per day while serving in the program. For more information about the House Page Program, click here.
