  CONGRATULATING JOHN ROBINSON ROYERO ON ACHIEVING THE RANK OF EAGLE 
                                 SCOUT

                                 ______
                                 

                           HON. JOHN L. MICA

                               of florida

                    in the house of representatives

                       Tuesday, December 10, 2013

  Mr. MICA. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize, honor and 
congratulate an outstanding constituent of my district, John Robinson 
Royero of Scout Troop 100 in Oviedo, Florida, for achieving the rank of 
Eagle Scout.
  The rank of Eagle Scout is the highest achievement in scouting. To 
attain this rank, he has demonstrated the qualities of leadership, 
self-discipline and perseverance while serving his family, friends and 
community. Only about five percent of Boy Scouts earn the rank of Eagle 
Scout. The awarding of the Rank of Eagle Scout is a performance-based 
achievement with high standards that have been well maintained over the 
past century.
  John Royero has met every test and challenge to pass through the 
ranks of the Boy Scouts. Those aspiring to be Eagle Scouts must fulfill 
requirements in the areas of leadership, service and outdoor skills. To 
demonstrate proficiency as a scout, each Boy Scout must achieve merit 
badges in the areas of First Aid, Citizenship, Environment, Fitness, 
Family Life and much more.
  The work ethic John has shown in his Eagle Scout projects, and every 
other project leading up to his Eagle Scout rank, speaks volumes about 
his commitment to assisting his community and serving a cause greater 
than himself. It is my honor to commend John Royero for his achievement 
of the rank of Eagle Scout. John will join the ranks of fellow Eagle 
Scouts like President Gerald R. Ford, Neil Armstrong and Florida 
Governor Rick Scott.
  Mr. Speaker, the example set by this young man and his supportive 
family demonstrates the rewards of hard work, dedication and 
perseverance. John's devotion to the Boy Scouts over the past decade is 
laudable, and I congratulate him on his achievement. I thank him for 
his dedication to service and know we can expect great things from him 
in the future. I invite my colleagues in the House to join me in 
congratulating John Robinson Royero on obtaining the rank of Eagle 
Scout, and I wish him continued success in his future endeavors.
