[Congressional Record Volume 164, Number 1 (Wednesday, January 3, 2018)] [Page S21] From the Congressional Record Online through the Government Publishing Office [www.gpo.gov] TRIBUTE TO MATT MARTIN Mr. TILLIS. Madam President, today I wish to recognize Matt Martin and congratulate him on his investiture as the U.S. attorney for the Middle District of North Carolina. Matt earned his law degree and undergraduate degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, both with the highest honors. Listed as one of North Carolina's ``Super Lawyers,'' Matt has extensive legal experience. Matt was an associate at Covington & Burling here in DC before moving back to Raleigh, NC, where he became partner at Smith Anderson. Most recently, Matt worked as the associate general counsel for Duke Energy. In addition to a sterling career in private practice, Matt exemplifies what it means to be a community servant. He has served on the board of directors for a number of philanthropic organizations, including the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina, Meals on Wheels of Wake County, the Youth Life Foundation of the Triangle, and the Marbles Kids Museum. Additionally, he served as chairman of the Wake County Planning Board in Wake County, NC. Finally, Matt is actively engaged in leading the next generation of attorneys. As a member of the North Carolina Bar Association's professionalism committee, Matt works on legal education programs and coaches law students and junior attorneys through internship programs and formal and informal mentoring. It was an honor to join Senator Burr in recommending Matt Martin to President Trump. He is a dedicated professional who has extensive legal knowledge and expertise. In addition, he is widely respected in the legal profession and the North Carolina community at large. I know that Matt will excel in leading the U.S. attorney's office. ____________________
