Proud of East Marshall icons

We read, with much pride, the article about Leroy Kivett being honored with the East Marshall building dedication. This is long overdue. Leroy is and was the foundation of LDF, LDF-SEMCO and East Marshall. We can’t think of anyone more deserving of this dedication than Leroy.

Speaking of royalty, the East Marshall school district also brings to mind the other “greats” of the district. The late Whitey Loerwald was certainly an icon of the district. There wasn’t one adult or child that he didn’t know their name. Burt Chaska is another person to be recognized right along with Jack Smith. These four men were simply the best the district has ever seen. We feel honored to have known these spectacular men when our children attended the Le Grand school district and a big thank you goes out to them!
