  Mr. PERLMUTTER. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize and applaud 
Rafael Resendez for receiving the Arvada Wheat Ridge Service 
Ambassadors for Youth award. Rafael Resendez is a 12th grader at 
Jefferson High School and received this award because his determination 
and hard work have allowed him to overcome adversities.
   The dedication demonstrated by Rafael Resendez is exemplary of the 
type of achievement that can be attained with hard work and 
perseverance. It is essential students at all levels strive to make the 
most of their education and develop a work ethic which will guide them 
for the rest of their lives.
   I extend my deepest congratulations to Rafael Resendez for winning 
the Arvada Wheat Ridge Service Ambassadors for Youth award. I have no 
doubt he will exhibit the same dedication and character in all of his 
future accomplishments.
