     IN RECOGNITION OF THE LEADERSHIP TRAINING INSTITUTE OF AMERICA

                                 ______
                                 

                           HON. JOHN BOOZMAN

                              of arkansas

                    in the house of representatives

                         Monday, June 15, 2009

  Mr. BOOZMAN. Madam Speaker, it is my pleasure to recognize and 
commend the Leadership Training Institute of America for its 
outstanding contributions to the development of our nation's youth. 
This organization is changing the world and shaping the future by 
inspiring Christian leaders to develop their critical thinking skills, 
study world view agendas and strategies, influence their communities 
with a Biblical world view, and excel as leaders.
  LTIA, headquartered in Fayetteville, Arkansas, is a cultural think 
tank that provides high school and college age students with training 
and opportunities in cultural dynamics and leadership values. This 
organization's mission is to identify, inspire, and instruct students 
for world view leadership and it has done that with hundreds of youth 
around the world.
  It is imperative for us to have organizations like this that are on 
the forefront of training youth in world view struggles, which enables 
them to defend their beliefs and to understand why traditional, 
conservative values are important to a free and secure society. These 
are the biblical values that our country was founded on.
  The students are encouraged to apply and excel in leadership, 
critical thinking skills, scientific knowledge, historical facts, world 
view conflicts and strategies and Biblical wisdom. They are exposed to 
the major philosophies, views, and issues of our world today and are 
encouraged to pursue careers in influential sectors of society.
  With great pride, I salute the Leadership Training Institute of 
America for its unrelenting dedication and commitment in training and 
equipping our youth for the challenges they will face tomorrow in the 
dynamic and ever changing world.
