Gina Grant Bull loyally worked in the Washington State Legislature for many years. She held roles ranging from Legislative Assistant in both the House and Senate, to House Page Supervisor. This caring woman worked every day to make others in the legislature feel like family, but the pages held an extra special place in her heart. While overseeing with the pages, she enthusiastically helped students from every corner of the state as they learned about our government and the functions of democracy. Sadly, in October of 2016, Gina unexpectedly passed away at the age of 57. Through this scholarship, her legacy of helping pages will live on. Youth who need assistance with the expenses accumulated during their experience in Olympia can earn a scholarship to offset their cost. This extends the opportunity to anyone, regardless of economic status, which was a goal of Gina’s.
The scholarship is intended to support families who demonstrate financial need, and we encourage those who qualify to submit an application. Please be assured that all information will be kept confidential and the award process will be administered in a discrete and respectful manner.
