                           HON. BILL CASSIDY

                              of louisiana

                    in the house of representatives

                         Tuesday, June 26, 2012

  Mr. CASSIDY. Mr. Speaker, I rise today in honor of the National Black 
Home Educators, which is located in Louisiana's Sixth Congressional 
District. This week they celebrate their annual banquet marking twelve 
years of service both locally and nationally.
  Founded in July 2000, the National Black Home Educators supports 
families who are actively involved in their children's education. The 
NBHE is comprised of more than 5,000 families, organizations, and 
companies which offer services, tools and resources to assist in 
children's education. The NBHE assists and equips families to best 
educate children at home while empowering children, with the support of 
their families, to achieve academic excellence. NBHE acts as a 
cornerstone in the homeschooling community by facilitating a supportive 
environment for all black home educators through field trips, meetings, 
and conferences.
  Mr. Speaker, I heartily commend the National Black Home Educators in 
their success and efforts in supporting and facilitating parents who 
are whole-heartedly invested in their children's education. The 
National Black Home Educators are an important asset to Louisiana's 
Sixth Congressional District as well as the rest of the nation. I wish 
them continued success in their mission to promote and support the 
homeschooling community.
