Eighth-grade students in Lori Kimminau’s class at St. Francis Borgia Grade School held a mock conclave and election of the pope last week, with each student researching a different cardinal and giving a presentation on why their choice should be elected. After three rounds of voting, Cardinal Timothy Dolan, who was presented by Sarah Eckelkamp, center, received two-thirds of the student vote and was “elected” pope. Debbie Williams, right, school secretary and sister of Cardinal Dolan, speaks with the students. Also shown, from left, are students Cameron Ferguson, Cole Hanneken and Claire Emke. Missourian Photo.
