  Mr. GRAVES of Missouri. Mr. Speaker, I proudly pause to recognize 
Jackson Anthony Carrizzo. Jax 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.
   Jax has been very active with his troop, participating in many scout 
activities. Over the many years Jax 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, Jax has led his troop in 
various positions including Patrol Leader, has earned the rank of 
Foxman in the Tribe of Mic-O-Say and is a Brotherhood Member in the 
Order of the Arrow. Jax has also contributed to his community through 
his Eagle Scout project. Jax redesigned, cleared and constructed a 70 
foot stretch of walking trail in the Parkville Nature Sanctuary in 
Parkville, Missouri, connecting a new bridge to the walking trail and 
adding new approaches to the bridge.
   Mr. Speaker, I proudly ask you to join me in commending Jackson 
Anthony Carrizzo for his accomplishments with the Boy Scouts of America 
and for his efforts put forth in achieving the highest distinction of 
Eagle Scout.
