Photo detail

In an effort to create excitement about an essay contest, Jefferson City Mayor Eric Struemph, foreground left, and Second Ward Councilman Shawn Schulte (not pictured), visited with fifth-grade students at South Elementary School. To explain how a primary works, Struemph had three students come to the front of the class and asked their classmates to vote their favorite by which shirt they preferred. The students will use the information they learned to better write their own essays about being Mayor.
