Taylor Van de Streek

June 17, 2014
Detroit Lakes teenager Taylor Van de Streek proudly displays “Life Savers,” the poem she wrote honoring the veterans in her life and entered in U.S. Senator Al Franken’s annual poetry contest ­— where she took third place among all entries in grades 10-12. The poem was reprinted in the “Congressional Record,” and a framed copy is now displayed in the senator’s offices. DL NEWSPAPERS/Vicki Gerdes
