Mr. LATHAM. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to congratulate and recognize
Angela Hilbert for being named a 2013 Forty Under 40 honoree by the
award-winning central Iowa publication, Business Record.
Since 2000, Business Record has undertaken an exhaustive annual review to identify a standout group of young leaders in the Greater Des Moines area who are making an impact in their communities and their careers. Each year, forty up-and-coming community and business leaders under 40 years of age are selected for this prestigious distinction, which is based on a combined criteria of community involvement and success in their chosen career field. The 2013 class of Forty Under 40 honorees join an impressive roster of 560 business leaders and growing.
Angela Hilbert is the Sales and Marketing Director for Deerfield Retirement Community. An Iowa native and graduate of the University of Northern Iowa, Angela always knew she wanted her work to include assisting and influencing those around her. This passion has led Angela to extensive involvement with nonprofits in Iowa over the last decade, including the YMCA of Greater Des Moines, the Des Moines Community Playhouse, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, and the Easter Seals of Iowa, just to name a few. Angela married her high school sweetheart Rob, and together they live in Urbandale with their daughters, Samantha and Emerson. Indicative of her character, Angela is honored to be among the 2013 Class of Forty Under 40 and [[Page E291]] hopes it will serve as another platform to contribute to those around her. In all facets of her life, Angela is an example of hard work and service that our state can be proud of.
Mr. Speaker, it is a profound honor to represent leaders like Angela in the United States Congress and it is with great pride that I recognize and applaud Mrs. Hilbert for utilizing her talents to better both her community and the great state of Iowa. I invite my colleagues in the House to join me in congratulating Angela on receiving this esteemed designation, thanking those at Business Record for their great work, and wishing each member of the 2013 Forty Under 40 class continued success.
