Congratulations 7th Grader Eva Seeger

Are You Proud of Your Country? That was the theme this year for the annual VFW Patriot’s Pen Essay Contest, a nationwide writing contest sponsored by the Veterans of Foreign Wars. Immanuel Lutheran School in Wentzville has participated in that contest since 2005 under the direction of teacher Joann Massmann. Seventh grader Eva Seeger was recently recognized as this year’s contest winner selected by Wentzville VFW Post 5327. Presenting checks from both the Veterans and Ladies Auxiliary of Post 5327 was Bob and Ann Heppermann. In addition, Immanuel was recognized for its dedication to honoring veterans by contributing the most essay entries from local area schools.
