    LONG of missouri in the house of representatives Friday, March 15, 2013 Mr. LONG. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize and honor the 50th anniversary of Glenn Bernet's career at Evangel University, a Christian university in Springfield, MO.

    Dr. Bernet began his career in 1963 as a professor of mathematics while finishing his master's degree, and he rose to become dean of the university in 1985, a position he still holds today.

    Through his tireless work as an educator over the last 50 years, Dr. Bernet has proven to be a constant factor that has given encouragement and growth to not just the university, but to each individual student.

    Dr. Bernet's leadership has inspired the university to reach for greater things. Under his leadership, Evangel achieved university status, and student enrollment has quadrupled to over 2,100 students.

    Throughout his career at Evangel, Dr. Bernet has proven to be a model example of an educator, and Evangel University and the Springfield community have benefited greatly because of it.

    I urge my colleagues to join me in congratulating Glenn Bernet on his 50th anniversary at Evangel University.
