                        HONORING MR. JARED KING


                             HON. ROD BLUM

                                of iowa

                    in the house of representatives

                       Wednesday, April 11, 2018

  Mr. BLUM. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor a remarkable young man, 
Jared John King who attained the Eagle Scout Award. Becoming an Eagle 
Scout, the highest rank in the Boy Scouts, has only been accomplished 
by approximately four percent of all Boy Scouts. The process requires 
earning at least 21 merit badges which takes years to fulfill.
   At the age of 15 and a freshman in high school, Mr. King should be 
proud of his accomplishment. Receiving his Eagle Scout rank 
demonstrates that he is a strong, dedicated, and proven leader. With 
this accomplishment, it is my hope he will continue to serve as a role 
model for younger boy scouts. Thank you to Mr. King for making a 
positive impact in northeast Iowa.
