Marissa Preister

A Pope John junior has been chosen as an Americanism essay winner at the national level.

Marissa Preister’s essay was originally entered in the 2019 Americanism Essay Contest, sponsored by the American Legion Auxiliary Elgin Unit #229. The essay subject was “How can we address and prevent veteran homelessness in our communities?”

After Preister was selected as one of the local winners, her essay moved to the state level and eventually advanced to nationals.
