                         Thursday, May 23, 2013

  Mr. HASTINGS of Florida. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor the 
American Muslim Alliance of Florida. This organization does excellent 
work for so many people around the State.
  Foremost among those is its annual scholarship dinner for graduating 
high school seniors. Now in its sixth year, the scholarship program 
received applications from 138 students at 56 high schools across 
Florida, and will present ten winners with an award on June 1, 2013.
  Past awardees have enrolled in some of America's most prestigious 
colleges and universities, as well as continued to excel in their 
chosen fields of study.
  I am very proud of the Alliance, and am privileged to have so many of 
its members live in my Congressional district.
  Mr. Speaker, it is my distinct pleasure to recognize the American 
Muslim Alliance, and express my most sincere gratitude for all that 
they do in our community. I also want to congratulate this year's 
winners, and wish them much success in their future endeavors.
