  Mr. TOM PRICE of Georgia. Mr. Speaker, today I rise to recognize and 
celebrate an outstanding educator, Bob Rumble. For more than 30 years, 
Bob has taught history and civics in high schools around Atlanta. Over 
the years Mr. Rumble has been an active participant in Close Up, an 
organization that brings students and teachers from around the country 
to Washington D.C. to promote interactive civic engagement. This week 
marks Mr. Rumble's 30th student trip to D.C.

   Mr. Rumble first took over the Close Up program at Stone Mountain 
High School in 1985. In 1993 he led the Close Up program at Heritage 
High School. Later in his career, Mr. Rumble chartered the program at 
both Roswell and Cambridge High Schools. Most recently Bob brought 
Close Up to his current position as a history teacher at Kings Ridge 
Christian School in Alpharetta. Through the Close Up program, Mr. 
Rumble has given his students a hands-on experience of what he taught 
in the classroom. Some of his former students and Close Up participants 
were able to join him this week on what may be Bob's last trip. Mr. 
Speaker I want to commend Mr. Rumble for his years of dedication and 
service to our community. Democracy requires active and informed 
participation and through these Close Up trips Mr. Rumble has been able 
to share that with his students. Due to educators like Mr. Rumble, our 
Nation's future is bright.
