    YOUNG of iowa in the house of representatives Tuesday, January 12, 2016 Mr. YOUNG of Iowa. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize and congratulate Mr. Roger Maxwell. Roger has been chosen for induction into the University of Northern Iowa (UNI) School of Music ``Jazz Hall of Fame''. He will be inducted on April 8, 2016 in Cedar Falls, Iowa.

    Roger was a graduate of the Iowa State Teachers' College, now known as the University of Northern Iowa. His years as an advocate for music and higher education, his talents as a composer of music educational materials, and his hard work as a founding member of the jazz program at UNI are all examples of his dedication to the art of music. It is a great honor to be chosen as a member of the ``Jazz Hall of Fame'' at UNI.

    Mr. Speaker, I applaud and congratulate Roger for this award and for sharing his musical talents and knowledge. I am proud to represent him in the United States Congress. I ask that my colleagues in the United States House of Representatives join me in congratulating Roger and wishing him nothing but continue success.
