   CONGRATULATING RUSSELLVILLE HIGH SCHOOL FOR ITS GRANT TO PREPARE 
                         STUDENTS OF AP TESTING

                                 ______
                                 

                           HON. JOHN BOOZMAN

                              of arkansas

                    in the house of representatives

                     Wednesday, September 23, 2009

  Mr. BOOZMAN. Madam Speaker, I rise today to congratulate the 
Russellville High School for being accepted as an Arkansas Advanced 
Initiative for Math and Science School.
  Beginning with the 2009-2010 school year Russellville High School 
will be receiving $750,000 in grant money, to be distributed over the 
next four years, to help teachers, along with students in properly 
preparing for the Advance Placement Exams, which take place every May.
  These funds will help the students do well on the exams. This is a 
great honor for the school district that will help develop the skills 
our students need to excel in a global economy.
  Arkansas was one of just seven states selected to receive grant money 
and Russellville High School was just one of 24 schools chosen in the 
state. I am proud to support both the students and teachers of 
Russellville High School and look forward to the academic excellence 
that will come from Russellville High in the years to follow.

                          ____________________
