                       Wednesday, April 17, 2013

  Mr. RENACCI. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize Mr. Ed Vittardi 
who has proudly served 31 years in public education in the great State 
of Ohio. Mr. Vittardi's career began as a social studies teacher at 
Dodge Middle School in Twinsburg, Ohio. From there, he served in many 
other roles in Twinsburg, ultimately becoming principal of Dodge Middle 
School. He also served as principal of Claggett Middle School (Medina), 
Independence Middle School (Independence), and North Royalton Middle 
School (North Royalton). For the past four years, Mr. Vittardi has 
worked as the North Royalton City District Superintendent. Under his 
leadership the district has made incredible progress. The Strategic 
Plan, developed in 2010 with unprecedented community involvement, has 
become a true living document. Through Mr. Vittardi's direction, the 
North Royalton City School District has maintained its Excellent rating 
on the Ohio Department of Education's Local Report Card. He implemented 
a five-year strategic plan, engaging more than 800 community members. 
Mr. Vittardi was also instrumental in the development of the North 
Royalton Stadium Foundation which raised more than $1.3 million to 
build a new stadium complex, including field turf, without a tax 
increase. I would like to acknowledge his achievements throughout his 
long career of public service and thank him for his outstanding 
contribution to the 16th Congressional District and the community of 
North Royalton.
