    GRAVES of missouri in the house of representatives Thursday, February 14, 2013 Mr. GRAVES of Missouri. Mr. Speaker, I proudly pause to recognize Benjamin Jackson Matt. Benjamin is a very special young man who has exemplified the finest qualities of citizenship and leadership by taking an active part in the Boy Scouts of America, Troop 314, and earning the most prestigious award of Eagle Scout.

    Benjamin has been very active with his troop, participating in many scout activities. Over the many years Benjamin has been involved with scouting, he has not only earned 32 merit badges, but also the respect of his family, peers, and community. Most notably, Benjamin has led his troop in various positions including Troop Guide, has earned the rank of Warrior in the Tribe of Mic-O-Say and is a Brotherhood Member in the Order of the Arrow. Benjamin has also contributed to his community through his Eagle Scout Project. Benjamin led a team of more than 30 people in designing and constructing a trail at Parkville Nature Sanctuary in Parkville, Missouri.
