Mr. GRAVES of Missouri. Mr. Speaker, I proudly pause to recognize
Jack Patrick Corgan. Jack 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 249, and
earning the most prestigious award of Eagle Scout.
Jack has been very active with his troop, participating in many scout activities. Over the many years Jack has been involved with scouting, he has not only earned 35 merit badges, but also the respect of his family, peers, and community. Most notably, Jack has led his troop as the assistant patrol leader, quartermaster and patrol leader while also becoming a member of the Tribe of Mic-O-Say. Jack has also contributed to his community through his Eagle Scout project. Jack constructed shelving and organized the commercial kitchen of The Farmer's House in Weston, Missouri, an organization where many adults with developmental disabilities are employed. Jack made the kitchen more friendly for these workers, including the additional shelving and labeling the kitchen in Braille, in simple text and with pictures.
Mr. Speaker, I proudly ask you to join me in commending Jack Patrick Corgan for his accomplishments with the Boy Scouts of America and for his efforts put forth in achieving the highest distinction of Eagle Scout.
