  Mr. PERLMUTTER. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize and applaud 
Savannah Gallegos-Alexus for receiving the Arvada Wheat Ridge Service 
Ambassadors for Youth award. Savannah Gallegos-Alexus is a 7th grader 
at Drake Middle School and received this award because her 
determination and hard work have allowed her to overcome adversities.
   The dedication demonstrated by Savannah Gallegos-Alexus 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 Savannah Gallegos-Alexus for 
winning the Arvada Wheat Ridge Service Ambassadors for Youth award. I 
have no doubt she will exhibit the same dedication and character in all 
of her future accomplishments.
