Reeves serves as Congressional Page

Bryan Reeves, a junior at Woodinville High School, recently served as a Congressional Page in the U.S. House of Representatives
   Congressional Pages are students in their junior year of high school who come to Washington, D.C., to live, study, and work in the House of Representatives.
   This program gives participants the opportunity to meet students from around the U.S., attend special classes and seminars at the Page School and serve the country. The practice of employing pages dates back over 200 years.
   U.S. Rep. Jay Inslee nominated Reeves for a page position in March. Reeves was an outstanding candidate with a strong academic record and a background in community service and student leadership. While there are 435 members of Congress wishing to recommend young persons for page positions, there are only about 66 page positions available. The Speaker of the House makes the final selection of candidates.
   "I (was) proud to have such an accomplished young man representing the First Congressional District in the Page program," said Inslee. "Our government needs the service of more bright and talented young people like Bryan."
