His commitment to agriculture earns him his state’s highest honor
Becky Doyle of the Macoupin County community in Gillespie never imagined she would join the ranks of those receiving Illinois’ highest honor, but that’s exactly where she found herself on Saturday during of the annual convocation of the Lincoln Academy of Illinois at Elmhurst.
“I’m a big fan of Lincoln Academy. I always read about the winners and their backgrounds,” Doyle said. “So I always admired the Lincoln Laureates, but I never dreamed I would be one.”
