                    in the house of representatives

                         Thursday, May 23, 2013

  Mr. LATHAM. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize and honor Acacia 
Scott for being named a 2013 recipient of the Dorothy Andrews Kabis 
Memorial Internship by the National Federation of Republican Women.

   The Dorthy Kabis Internship is named after former National 
Federation of Republican Women President who served from 1963-1967 
before being appointed as the United States Treasurer by President 
Nixon. This Memorial Internship Program is a highly selective program 
that offers just three young women from across the nation the chance to 
work in the headquarters of this prominent women's political 
organization in our national's capital. This program is reserved for 
undergraduate college students that display a keen knowledge of 
government and a strong interest in politics.
   Mr. Speaker, Acacia's ability to be named to just one of three 
nationwide internships by the National Federation of Republican Women 
speaks volumes to her abilities and renowned Iowa work ethic. It is an 
honor to represent future leaders like Acacia from the great state of 
Iowa in the United States Congress and I invite my colleagues in the 
House to join me in congratulating her for receiving this prestigious 
designation. I wish her the best of luck in her future studies and 
career.
