                        HON. WILLIAM R. KEATING

                            of massachusetts

                    in the house of representatives

                         Tuesday, June 26, 2012

  Mr. KEATING. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize Steven Patrick 
Moynihan for being awarded a James Madison Fellowship.
  This extremely competitive fellowship is directed toward current and 
prospective teachers of American history and civic studies, and it 
supports such individuals as they study the principles of the 
Constitution of the United States. Founded by Congress in 1986 and 
named in honor of the fourth president of the United States--the 
credited ``Father of our Constitution and Bill of Rights,'' the award 
aims to recognize distinguished teachers and to strengthen their 
knowledge of the origins and progression of American constitutional 
  This year, only 58 fellowships were awarded and Mr. Moynihan, a 
teacher at Barnstable High School in Hyannis, Massachusetts, was 
selected for one among the applicants from across the nation. The James 
Madison Fellowship will fund up to $24,000 of Mr. Moynihan's course of 
study toward an advanced degree.
  Mr. Speaker, it always brings me great pride to honor a dedicated and 
deserving teacher, such as Steven Patrick Moynihan. I congratulate him 
for being awarded a James Madison Fellowship and urge my colleagues to 
join me in recognizing the importance of this award and of Mr. 
Moynihan's service to the students of Barnstable.
