  Mr. MILLER of Florida. Madam Speaker, I rise today to recognize 
Patricia Toy upon receiving the Walton County, Florida Teacher of the 
Year Award. Patricia is a dedicated teacher and public servant, and I 
am honored to recognize her achievements.
  Patricia Toy has an extensive career in education. She earned her 
bachelor's degree from Eastern Kentucky University and her Master's in 
Education from Georgetown College in Kentucky. Past teaching awards 
include the Who's Who Among American Teachers Award in 1998, 2000, and 
2002, as well as the Outstanding Educator Award from the Kentucky 
Governor's Scholar Program in 2001. She has been a teacher for over 28 
years.
  In her third year at Paxton School in Walton County, Patricia now 
teaches seventh grade language arts and high school Spanish. Her 
tremendous dedication to the students of Paxton has earned her the 
Walton County Teacher of the Year Award for 2010.
  Madam Speaker, on behalf of the United States Congress, I am 
privileged to recognize Patricia Toy as the Walton Teacher of the Year. 
She is a true community leader and a great educator. My wife Vicki and 
I wish Patricia and her family all the best for the future.
