[Extensions of Remarks] [Page E124] From the Congressional Record Online through the Government Publishing Office [www.gpo.gov] RECOGNIZING DEBORAH LYNN AS THE WALTON COUNTY EDUCATIONAL SUPPORT PERSON OF THE YEAR ______ HON. JEFF MILLER of florida in the house of representatives Tuesday, February 2, 2010 Mr. MILLER of Florida. Madam Speaker, I rise today to recognize Mrs. Deborah Lynn as the Walton County, Florida Educational Support Person of the Year for the 2009-2010 school year. I am honored to recognize her achievements and her dedication to the students and teachers of Northwest Florida. Mrs. Lynn, affectionately known as Ms. Debby by her students, is the school nurse for Freeport Elementary School. She supervises the school's clinic, provides first aid for injuries, maintains health records, and administers medicine. But what sets Mrs. Lynn apart from her peers is her initiative. She created Freeport's annual Summer Safety program for students which brings community organizations into the school to teach students about summer safety. Mrs. Lynn also coordinates with the Walton County Health Department all student health screenings, records, and H1N1 vaccines. Finally, she goes above and beyond to also serve the school staff by organizing a mobile mammogram bus to visit the school annually and arranging flu shots for teachers and school employees. Madam Speaker, on behalf of the United States Congress, I am privileged to recognize Deborah Lynn as the Walton County Educational Support Person of the Year. Her passion for her students is commendable and her dedication to her profession makes her deserving of this award. My wife Vicki and I wish Deborah and her family all the best for the future. ____________________
