                       EAGLE SCOUT WILLIAM McLEES

  (Mr. VAN DREW asked and was given permission to address the House for 
1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)
  Mr. VAN DREW. Madam Speaker, today, I would like to commend William 
McLees of south Jersey on achieving the admirable rank of Eagle Scout.
  William led his fellow boy scouts of Troop 79 in his Eagle Scout 
project to install an information kiosk at Somers Mansion. This 
information booth will educate visitors about the past of this old 
historic building, which is one of the oldest buildings in the region, 
dating back to 1725.
  McLees carefully outfitted the kiosk with solar panels for lighting 
and a waterproof exterior so the structure will now be as long-lasting 
as Somers Mansion itself.
  Madam Speaker, I applaud William's craftsmanship and his leadership 
in coordinating this project, and I thank him for this informative 
addition to our entire south Jersey community. I congratulate him on 
his high title of Eagle Scout, and I wish him the very best.
  Americans look for heroes all over the world. Our hero is William 
McLees. He truly deserves our praise.
