    THOMPSON of mississippi in the house of representatives Friday, January 10, 2014 Mr. THOMPSON of Mississippi. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor a self motivated leader and innovator of the community, Ms. Candace Windom and Miyori's Massage.

    Born and raised in Rolling Fork, Candace graduated from South Delta High School and completed her studies in massage therapy at Antonelli College in July 2012. She earned her license as a state board certified therapist shortly after.

    In late January 2013 Candace was hired as the only full-time massage therapist at Harlow's Casino in Greenville, Mississippi. At the age of 26, Candace opened the doors to Miyori's Massage at 133 Walnut Street in July 2013.

    Miyori's Massage offers a wide variety of massage techniques. ``This is my hometown,'' Windom said, ``I want to give back to my community and bring something here we've never really had.'' Mr. Speaker, I ask my colleagues to join me in recognizing Candace Windom for giving back to the community in which she was born and reared.
