                         Friday, April 26, 2013

  Mr. GRIFFITH of Virginia. Mr. Speaker, each year, the McGlothlin 
Foundation of Bristol, Virginia awards one kindergarten through fifth 
grade teacher and one sixth through twelfth grade teacher from selected 
areas of Virginia, Tennessee, West Virginia, and Kentucky with its 
Award for Teaching Excellence.
  I am pleased to say that both 2013 award recipients teach in the 
district I am proud to represent, the Ninth District of Virginia
  Today, I extend my congratulations and also my gratitude to Pamela 
MacDonald, a fifth-grade teacher at Pearisburg's Macy McClaugherty 
Elementary School, and to Steve Ahn, a biology and earth science 
teacher at Abingdon High School.
  For their efforts in the classroom, both of these educators won a 
monetary prize, a portion of which must be used on an international 
trip so they can ultimately bring the world back into their classrooms. 
Reports indicate that Ms. MacDonald intends to travel to Europe with 
her winnings, and that Mr. Ahn will head to Norway and Finland.
  On behalf of other parents in our area, thank you, Ms. MacDonald and 
Mr. Ahn, for all that you do for children of Virginia's Ninth District, 
and congratulations on receiving the McGlothlin Foundation's 2013 Award 
for Teaching Excellence.
