Mr. SMITH of Missouri. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor Donna Jean
Kirby of Doniphan, Missouri for her outstanding service and involvement
in Ripley County. In recognition of her hard work in the community, Ms.
Kirby is receiving the Ripley County Chamber of Commerce Citizen of the
Year Award. Ms. Kirby has volunteered her time with Relay for Life in
addition to chairing the Christmas decorating committee of Heritage
Park and pitching in at Independence Day, Labor Day, Timberfest, and
other holiday festivities. She is a sister of Beta Sigma Phi sorority
and supports a variety of other interests in the community, including
working with a committee of local citizens to keep a local hospital
If there is an event taking place in Ripley County, chances are Donna Kirby is helping out to make it happen. She has made Ripley County a better place through her hard work and dedication. Ms. Kirby is also a mother of two and grandmother of four. I am grateful that we have such enthusiastic and committed members of the community, such as Ms. Donna Jean Kirby whose hard work makes a difference in so many lives.
