Issue Date:

Highlights the lives of this “family of achievers” from father H.R. Wiecking and mother Emma (Kerndt) and their five illustrious offspring. Daughter Anna, for whom (along with sister Emma) MSU’s Wiecking Center was named, points out how parents and teachers “influence children for good...when some of the ideals that make our country great have been submerged.”
