  Mr. GRAVES of Missouri. Madam Speaker, I proudly pause to recognize 
Allyah Smith. Allyah is a very special woman and leader who is being 
honored with the Future Leader Award as a part of the St. Joseph YWCA's 
prestigious Women of Excellence.

  To say that Allyah Smith is an exceptional young lady is a definition 
of understatement. Not only is she an award-winning poet, but she is an 
exceptional cross-country runner. Allyah has been recognized for her 
hours of volunteer service in the community winning the coveted 
Presidential Volunteer Service Award.
  She has also participated in events to educate students on the 
dangers of impaired driving.
  Madam Speaker, I proudly ask you to join me in recognizing Allyah 
Smith for being honored as the Future Leader Award winner by the St. 
Joseph YWCA through serving St. Joseph, the state of Missouri and the 
Sixth Congressional District. I am honored to represent her in the 
United States Congress.
