RECOGNIZING STUDENTS AT CONRAD WEISER HIGH SCHOOL FOR SUCCESS IN C-SPAN 
                            STUDENT CAM 2019

                                 ______
                                 

                           HON. DANIEL MEUSER

                            of pennsylvania

                    in the house of representatives

                         Monday, April 15, 2019

  Mr. MEUSER. Madam Speaker, it is with great respect that I rise today 
to honor ErieI Gaylord, Sammy Saldana, and Melany Davila, from Conrad 
Weiser High School in Robesonia, Pennsylvania. These students 
participated in the 2019 National C-SPAN Student Cam Video Contest, and 
out of 3,000 entries, their five-minute entry entitled, ``America's 
Homeless,'' earned them an honorable mention.
  This was certainly a profile in courage, as one of the students, 
ErieI Gaylord, bravely shared her experience with homelessness. In 
telling her story, Eriel helped to raise awareness and educate others 
on the many challenges faced by homeless youth--while encouraging other 
individuals and families, who face similar challenges, to take 
advantage of the resources available in our communities to help them 
obtain housing security.
  Each American faces their own challenges and pursues their own 
passions; resilience, however, is a defining characteristic of 
Pennsylvania's Ninth District. No matter the challenges we face, the 
determination with which we rise to meet them defines us more than our 
trials themselves.
  Eriel's story and the context in which it is presented should inspire 
each of us. Although it is troubling that such daunting challenges face 
young people in my own district, I am inspired by their engagement, 
advocacy, and passion. It is an honor to recognize Eriel's bravery, and 
the work of these students. May they continue to engage their passions, 
pursue solutions, and showcase American resilience.
