    KENNEDY asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.) Mr. KENNEDY. Mr. Speaker, I rise in honor of a very special guest of mine today, Emmanuel Aviles from Taunton, Massachusetts, who is visiting Washington with his family.

    At just 10 years old, Emmanuel was selected as the grand-prize winner in Scholastic's national Picture a President art contest. His charcoal sketch of Abraham Lincoln earned him that distinguished honor, as well as a 50-book library for his classroom at Parker Middle School and a trip to Washington, D.C.

    Emmanuel's teacher back home calls him, ``a great role model,'' who is ``eager to learn and help other kids.'' He practices art drawing every day and hopes to some day pursue a career in art.

    Today, Emmanuel is joined in the Capitol by his father, Emmanuel, Sr., his mother, Karen, and his brother, Diego.

    I would like to welcome them to Washington and congratulate Emmanuel on making his school, his city, and his State incredibly proud.

    Congratulations, Emmanuel.
