Basehor-Linwood middle schoolers read essays on patriotism

A group of Basehor-Linwood Middle School students on Thursday gathered at the Basehor VFW Post 11499 to speak about patriotism in front of veterans, school officials and their families. Eight BLMS students read their winning 300- to 400-word essays in the Basehor post's Patriot's Pen contest. The theme for the contest this year was "Are You Proud of Your Country?" and the answer from the students was a resounding "Yes."
