                        TRIBUTE TO KAREN WEAVER

 Mr. PAUL. Madam President, Karen Weaver, a Kentucky native and 
a veteran of the U.S. Air Force, has been recognized as the Kentucky 
Female Veteran of the Year 2019. After serving on Active Duty and in 
the Air Force Reserve, Karen taught science at Leestown Middle School 
in Lexington, KY, where she began immersing herself in volunteer work 
for veterans. She has worked with Military Missions, an organization 
that sent care packages to over 8,500 deployed U.S. men and women last 
year. One of her current passions is Lady Veterans Connect, a nonprofit 
with a real heart for female veterans, particularly those who are 
homeless. Karen Weaver has been an incredible role model to the 
children of her classrooms and to the entire Commonwealth. I am honored 
to recognize Karen in her service to our country and our State.
