  Mr. ALEXANDER. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize and 
congratulate two elementary students from Ouachita Parish who 
participated in a national art exhibit opening in Washington, D.C. 
Eight-year-old Jarred Rambo and 10-year-old Shelby Rambo, children of 
Judge and Mrs. Wilson and Christine Rambo of West Monroe, La., cut the 
ribbon on the U.S. Department of Education's Student Art Exhibit 
   This wonderful program is now in its 10th year and strives to 
highlight student accomplishment in the arts. This year, the exhibit 
featured works from the 2012 national PTA winners. Jarred won the PTA 
Reflections Award of Excellence for literature in the primary division 
for pre-K through second grade and Shelby won the PTA Reflections Award 
of Merit for dance choreography in the intermediate division for third 
grade through fifth grade. Both students were honored in the U.S. 
Department of Education's ceremony along with other winners from around 
the country.
   Jarred and Shelby should be commended for their hard work and 
remarkable artistic ability. I ask my colleagues to join me in 
congratulating their wonderful achievements.
