SHANNON – A fifth grade student at Eastland Elementary School recently was chosen as the winner in his age group in an essay contest by the Daughters of the American Revolution Carroll-Jo Daviess Chapter.

Kaleb LaRue is a student in Tonia Blair’s class, and took part in the contest.

The topic was the pros and cons of women’s suffrage and the impact it had on society in the 1900s.

LaRue will be recognized at a luncheon in February, and proceed to the state contest.
