  Mr. GRAVES of Missouri. Mr. Speaker, I proudly pause to recognize 
Spencer Harrison Granger. Spencer is a very special young man who has 
exemplified the finest qualities of citizenship and leadership by 
taking an active part in the Boy Scouts of America, Troop 314, and 
earning the most prestigious award of Eagle Scout.
   Spencer has been very active with his troop, participating in many 
scout activities. Over the many years Spencer has been involved with 
scouting, he has not only earned 33 merit badges, but also the respect 
of his family, peers, and community. Most notably, Spencer has led his 
troop in various positions including Patrol Leader, has earned the rank 
of Warrior in the Tribe of Mic-O-Say and is a Brotherhood Member in the 
Order of the Arrow. Spencer has also contributed to his community 
through his Eagle Scout project. Spencer constructed nine disc golf tee 
boxes for a public disc golf course at Fox Hill Elementary School in 
Kansas City, Missouri.
   Mr. Speaker, I proudly ask you to join me in commending Spencer 
Harrison Granger for his accomplishments with the Boy Scouts of America 
and for his efforts put forth in achieving the highest distinction of 
Eagle Scout.
