Mr. LATHAM. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to congratulate and recognize
Lindsay Alderman 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.
Lindsay Alderman is the Client Operations Manager for LightEdge Solutions Inc., where she oversees a staff of 15 people. Lindsay is tasked with the crucial duty of developing and maintaining client relationships for the company. Outside of the office, Ms. Alderman contributes a large amount of time and dedication to assisting nonprofit organizations and charities including Girl Scouts of Iowa, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Iowa, Salisbury House and Gardens, and the Young Professionals Connection, for which she is currently president. Lindsay has also organized numerous events in the Des Moines area including the first-ever nonprofit forum that included hundreds of people and more than 50 organizations, as well as the Central Iowa Shelter Services' Chili for Charity fundraiser, which raised more than $1,500 for homeless Iowans. Ms. Alderman's commitment and passion for utilizing her talents to assist her community is a remarkable example that our state should be proud of.
Mr. Speaker, it is a profound honor to represent leaders like Lindsay in the United States Congress and it is with great pride that I recognize and applaud Ms. Alderman 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 Lindsay 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.
