  Mr. KANJORSKI. Mr. Speaker, I rise to pay tribute to Johanna Weaver, 
of Monroe County, PA, on the occasion of her being named ``Humanitarian 
of the Year'' by the Pocono Mountains Chamber of Commerce.
  Mrs. Weaver served as executive director of Pocono Services for 
Families and Children for more than 33 years before her retirement last 
August.
  Over the years, she has distinguished herself as a community leader, 
volunteer and mentor to children.
  She has served the Monroe County Children and Youth Advisory Board, 
Habitat for Humanity Advisory Board, Drug and Alcohol Prevention 
Juvenile Task Force, Monroe County Job Center Task Force, League of 
Women Voters, United Way, Monroe County Association for the Education 
of Young Children, Welfare Reform Task Force, WNEP-TV Advisory Board, 
Kiwanis Clubs of the Stroudsburgs, Chamber of Commerce Executive 
Women's Council and the East Stroudsburg University Women's Center 
Advisory Board.
  On a State and national level, she has served the Head Start program, 
the National Association for the Education of Young Children and the 
Pennsylvania Association of Child Care Administrators.
  She has also served the East Stroudsburg School District's reading 
program and was a member of the district's Band, Football and Wrestling 
Parents Associations.
  Mrs. Weaver is married to Michael Weaver, a retired professor from 
East Stroudsburg University. The couple has two children and three 
grandchildren.
  Mr. Speaker, please join me in congratulating Mrs. Weaver on the 
occasion of this honor. Her selfless commitment to family and community 
and, especially, to the welfare of children has enriched the greater 
Pocono Mountain region. Mrs. Weaver deserves our gratitude and 
appreciation.
