  Mr. TANCREDO. Madam Speaker, I rise today to pay tribute to one of my 
constituents Mr. Evan Balogh of Morrison, Colorado, who will attend a 
People to People World Leadership Forum in 2008. His outstanding 
academic merits and communal involvement have laid a solid foundation 
of individual integrity and dedication: both characteristics of a 
qualified leader. I am honored to represent such a promising young man.
  Created in 1956, the People to People Program is an educational

than 200,000 students and professionals develop their leadership skills 
based upon Dwight D. Eisenhower's belief that ``people can make a

insider's perspective of Washington, DC.
  Madam Speaker, it is my distinct pleasure to acknowledge one of 
Colorado's own. Please join me in congratulating Mr. Balogh and wishing 
him the best in his future endeavors.
