  Mr. BROWN of South Carolina. Mr. Speaker, today Mrs. JoLynn Mellis, a 
teacher from College Park Elementary School in Ladson, South Carolina, 
was awarded the 2000 Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics 
and Science Teaching Award by the National Science Foundation. I rise 
today to congratulate Mrs. Mellis on this prestigious award. This 
award, the nation's highest commendation for K-12 math and science 
teachers, recognizes sustained and exemplary work, both inside the 
classroom and out. These outstanding teachers serve as role models for 
their colleagues.
  Mrs. Mellis exemplifies what is great about America's public schools. 
Mrs. Mellis recognizes that our children are our future; she has taken 
on the crucial responsibility to ensure her students master the math 
and science skills they require to make that future a bright one for 
South Carolina and for the United States of America. She has fulfilled 
this responsibility in outstanding fashion. I commend Mrs. Mellis for 
her hard work and dedication. Thank you, Mrs. Mellis.
