                        Wednesday, March 4, 2015

  Mr. TAKANO. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor and congratulate 
fellow educator John Corona, as he retires after 36 years of devoted 
public service.
  Mr. Corona has been a valued leader in Riverside classrooms since 
1979. Whether it was teaching courses, chairing the Martin Luther King 
High School Social Studies department, or serving as head coach of the 
Track and Field team, Mr. Corona has been an invaluable resource for 
students in our community.
  For the past decade and a half, Mr. Corona's oral history project 
called King High School Remembers has connected hundreds of students 
with veterans to learn about history from those who wrote it. This 
program helps preserve the legacy of these heroes. Because of its 
impact, King High School Remembers has received widespread acclaim and 
numerous awards, and is recognized as an exemplary educational program.
  I want to thank Mr. Corona for his devotion to his students, 
colleagues, and our community over the years, and wish him all the best 
as he begins this new chapter in his life.
