  Mr. GUTHRIE. Madam Speaker, I rise today to honor Ms. Christa Altman 
for her service to the students at St. Aloysius Gonzaga Academy in 
Shepherdsville, Kentucky. She was recognized with the Catholic 
Education Foundation's Teacher Award.
  Ms. Altman is devoted to making sure the students that pass through 
her classroom receive the best education possible. Her first-grade 
class consistently performs near the top on the school's annual test 
that measures student achievement.
  Ms. Altman's positive influence on her students is also evident 
outside of the classroom. She regularly volunteers for school 
activities and important causes, such as raising funds for St. Jude 
Children's Research Hospital. By showing this spirit of volunteerism, 
Ms. Altman is inspiring future generations to make a difference in 
their communities.
  Ms. Altman's passion for making a difference in the lives of her 
students is an example for all Kentuckians to follow. I thank Ms. 
Altman for her commitment to the students in Shepherdsville.
