Local student participates in Illinois History Expo
SPRINGFIELD, IL - State Sen. Sue Rezin (R-Morris) welcomed Max Colby and his mother, Mindy, to the State Capitol Thursday, May 3. Max, a Utica resident, was in town to participate in the Illinois History Expo.
A seventh grader from Trinity Catholic Academy in LaSalle, Max was the only student from his school to advance from a regional historical fair earlier this year to be a participant in the Illinois History Expo. His project focused on the history of St. Margaret’s Hospital in Spring Valley over the span of 50-plus years.
