Thanks to UIS professor for visit to school

Letter to the editor, published in an April 14, 2012, edition of The State Journal-Register.

"The Cosmos Club of Lincoln Magnet School would like to thank professor John Martin from University of Illinois Springfield for recently visiting our middle school and our club.

Martin brought his solar telescope for our club to look through. We all enjoyed it and are very thankful to Martin. He also taught us very interesting facts about a star he had studied.

Thank you also to Kristine Gates, our science teacher and club adviser, for helping us all year."

— Sage Thompson, sixth grade, Lincoln Magnet School, Springfield
