Carol Mason of the Fort Sidney Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution spoke to Sarah Wilson's sixth-grade class about the importance of patriotism and family history on Wednesday morning.

The National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution held its annual American history essay contest for fifth- through eighth-graders. The 2015 topic was "A Child's Journey Through Ellis Island" to commemorate the 125th anniversary of Ellis Island as an immigration station.
