Mr. ROE of Tennessee. Mr. Speaker, I submit these remarks today to
recognize Mr. David Pickler, who has recently been elected as President
of the National School Boards Association for 2013-2014.
David has served on the Shelby County Board of Education since 1998 and has served as Chairman of the Board for 12 years. In 2008, David was elected to the National School Boards Association's Board of Directors and served as the Southern Region Representative. In 2009, David served as President of the Tennessee School Boards Association and has held several positions of leadership with It.
David is an excellent example of the spirit of volunteerism, which we Tennesseans hold close to our hearts. His community service and philanthropic endeavors are both numerous and extraordinary, casting a legacy of selflessness and determination to better education across Tennessee. Perhaps the highlight of this legacy is the creation of the Shelby County Schools Education Foundation, which has provided more than $1 million in financial support for public education. David's awards and accolades at the local, state and national level are extensive and serve as a testament to the positive impact he has had on the children of Tennessee.
Mr. Speaker, I commend Mr. Pickier for his unwavering commitment to improving education for the students of Shelby County, Tennessee, and the United States of America.
