[Extensions of Remarks] [Page E1521] RECOGNIZING THE TECHNOLOGY ACCESS FOUNDATION ACADEMY ______ HON. ADAM SMITH of washington in the house of representatives Thursday, September 13, 2012 Mr. SMITH of Washington. Mr. Speaker, I rise to honor the Technology Access Foundation (TAF) Academy, located in Kent, Washington and part of the Federal Way Public Schools, for winning the Schools of Distinction award for being the top middle school in mathematics instruction. Each year, the Intel Corporation honors elementary, middle and high schools from across the country for excellence in math and science education. Award winners in the math and science categories for each level receive $10,000 to support efforts to remain at the cutting edge of preparing students for careers in the 21st century. The TAF Academy opened in 2008 as a unique partnership between the Federal Way Public Schools and the Technology Access Foundation. It is a public middle and high school that receives additional support from the Technology Access Foundation to give students topnotch education in science, technology, engineering, and math. Students take rigorous classes that prepare them for college and eventually careers in the ever-changing and increasingly competitive global job market. Mr. Speaker, it is with great honor that I recognize the hard work of students, teachers, parents, and administrators of the Technology Access Foundation Academy. The academy's focus on science, technology, engineering and math will be greatly beneficial to its students and to our country. ____________________
