Mr. WEBSTER of Florida. Mr. Speaker, it is my pleasure to recognize
Police Chief Rolando Banasco of Mascotte, Florida for being one of six
recipients to receive the 2013 Graduate Recognition for Excellence,
Achievement and Talent (GREAT) Award. This annual award is presented to
successful and hardworking college graduates who have each overcome
many obstacles while achieving their educational goals.
Chief Banasco has been a dedicated servant to our community throughout his 20 year law enforcement career. After receiving his Master of Arts in Criminal Justice from Keiser University, he was able to advance his career and was promoted to Chief of Police for the City of Mascotte, Florida, in December of 2011. He is the first Hispanic- Latino to serve as Police Chief in Lake County Florida. Due to the flexible nature of education provided by Keiser University, he intends to continue his education by pursuing a Doctorate in Business Administration.
On behalf of the citizens of Central Florida, I congratulate and applaud Police Chief Banasco for his diligence, commitment and leadership to his community and for his educational achievements. He is highly deserving of the 2013 GREAT Award. I wish him much success as he continues his studies, and may his investment in hard work and perseverance inspire others to follow in his footsteps.
