  Mr. ROGERS of Alabama. Mr. Speaker, I would like to ask for the 
House's attention today to recognize Reverend O.C. Stiggers, who is 
retiring at the age of 85.
  Pastor Stiggers was born in Chambers County, Alabama to the late John 
and Historia Williams Stiggers. Pastor Stiggers graduated from the 
Lanett School System. Afterwards, he attended the Columbus, Georgia 
branch of American Baptist Theological Seminary of Nashville, 
Tennessee. He also attended Moody's Bible College. He received his 
Doctorate of Divinity and his Doctorate of Laws.
  Pastor Stiggers has served as the Executive Chair of the Western 
Union Missionary Baptist Association, as a member of the Board of 
Trustees of Mt. Calvary Baptist Association and a Dean of the Bryant 
Theological Seminary School in Hamilton, Georgia. Pastor Stiggers is 
also a former member of the Board of Trustees at Selma University in 
Selma, Alabama, and he is a former president of the Parent/Teachers 
Association.
  Currently, Pastor Stiggers is a member of the Ebenezer Baptist Church 
in Lanett, Alabama. He also serves as Pastor of Ozias Ministry Baptist 
Church and Eastside Baptist Church.
  Mr. Speaker, I would like to join Reverend Stiggers' friends, family, 
and congregation in wishing him the best after his retirement.
