This I believe:
Citing the promise and tranquility of a sunny day, and identifying a brain, a book and a pencil as necessities led to recognition for two Beardstown High School seniors.
Lydia Davidsmeier and Camila Garcia have been named to the “This I believe Illinois” essay program sponsored by National Public Radio Illinois. They are among 10 central Illinois essayists to be so honored.
The ‘This I Believe’ program has its genesis in the broadcasting’s “golden age,” when legendary broadcast journalist Edward R. Murrow filled the airwaves with his thought-provoking, 5-minute monologues.
