Mr. ADERHOLT. Mr. Speaker, it is my privilege today to honor Mrs.
Evelyn Stevens, a member of my staff for almost seventeen years. Evelyn
is retiring this year after over 34 years of service to the U.S. House
Evelyn began working for my predecessor, Congressman Tom Bevill, in 1979 and has worked continuously since then with passion and dedication for the constituents of the current Fourth Congressional District of Alabama. It would be difficult to count the number of constituents that she has helped during her tenure with the Fourth District of Alabama.
Evelyn was married for almost 40 years to Milton ``Bud'' Stevens and has two daughters, Renita Rigney and Amelia Sutter. She has five grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren with two more great- grandchildren soon to be born. She enjoys traveling with her daughters and takes the time to visit a different baseball stadium in the country during a trip they take every year. Evelyn is also an avid bowler, bowling every Tuesday evening with her team.
Few people can look back on their life and see that they have contributed so much to the well-being of their fellow citizens and their country. Evelyn Stevens is one of those people.
On behalf of myself and all the people of Alabama's Fourth Congressional District, I can never thank her enough for her hard work and dedication to serving the people of Alabama and the United States of America.
May God bless Evelyn in the years to come.
