  Ms. LORETTA SANCHEZ of California. Mr. Speaker, I rise today in 
recognition of Women's History Month, which took place last month.
  Next week I will hold a special briefing to recognize the 
contributions and accomplishments of four outstanding women in Orange 
County, California.
  Mallory Vega is the Executive Director of Acacia Adult Day Services, 
a nonprofit agency providing daycare and health services.
  Under her leadership, Acacia has grown from serving eight 
participants to over seven thousand.
  Dr. Maria Minon, Chief Medical Officer of Children's Hospital of 
Orange County, has devoted her career to transforming the delivery of 
pediatric medicine to children and families.
  Arianna Barrios, an active business owner and member of our 
community, has dedicated her career to serving education and non-profit 
institutions.
  Dr. Mildred Garcia, President of California State University 
Fullerton, is the first Latina president in the University's system and 
has strengthened opportunities for students, institutions and 
communities at large.
  I look forward to recognizing these outstanding women and their 
contributions to our communities.
