                       HONORING DR. DEWEY BROWDER


                         HON. MARSHA BLACKBURN

                              of tennessee

                    in the house of representatives

                        Thursday, April 25, 2013

  Mrs. BLACKBURN. Mr. Speaker, the mark of a great community is found 
in its leadership. Hard working, always professional, and dedicated to 
long-term vision are the key qualities of a strong local leader. The 
mark of a great country is found in those willing to serve her cause. I 
rise today to honor a leader of a great community and country, Dr. 
Dewey Browder.
  From mentoring students at Austin Peay State University to 
highlighting veterans in Montgomery County, Dr. Browder's hard work 
helped make Clarksville a nobler place to call home. His awards are 
numerous and far too few for his contributions. Serving as a member of 
the Kiwanis Club, the Mayor's Veterans Service Organization, the Civil 
War Sesquicentennial Commission, the Clarksville-Montgomery County 
Military Affairs Committee, and the Wings of Liberty Museum, Dr. 
Browder's time, talents, and treasures are unmatched.
  Shaping the next generation of students, of veterans, and of citizens 
is a sacred act. I ask my colleagues to join me in honoring Dr. Dewey 
Browder. Along with his family, friends, and coworkers, I offer my 
gratitude for his life's work.
