  Mr. BUCK. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize Mr. Bill Webster on 
being inducted into the Colorado Agriculture Hall of Fame. This honor 
is reserved for those who have made a significant contribution to the 
agricultural industry of Colorado and the United States.
  Mr. Webster has had a tremendous impact on agriculture in Colorado. 
He started Webster Land and Cattle Company at a young age and managed 
the company for over thirty years. After his retirement, Mr. Webster 
served in the Colorado State Legislature and as the Weld County 
Commissioner at Large. He has continuously been a leader in his 
community, serving on multiple boards and participating in various 
organizations. Today he is involved in the Greeley Rotary Club, T-Bone 
Club, First Congregational Church, and the American Legion.
  In addition to being a leader in his community, Mr. Webster served 
his country for two years in the United States Army. After his many 
years of public service, Mr. Webster returned to Colorado State 
University to complete his Bachelor of Science degree in Animal 
Science. Mr. Bill Webster has set an exceptional example of leadership 
and public service, and it is a great honor to call him a dear friend 
and my father-in-law.
  On behalf of the 4th Congressional District of Colorado, I extend my 
best wishes to Mr. Bill Webster. His passion and dedication to the 
agricultural industry makes him more than worthy of this distinct 
recognition. Mr. Speaker, it is an honor to recognize Mr. Bill Webster 
for his accomplishments.
