[Extensions of Remarks] [Pages E500-E501] From the Congressional Record Online through the Government Publishing Office [www.gpo.gov] IN HONOR OF JACK PHARAOH WINNING THE 2019 WYOMING JEFFERSON AWARD ______ HON. LIZ CHENEY of wyoming in the house of representatives Monday, April 29, 2019 Ms. CHENEY. Madam Speaker, I rise today to congratulate Jack Pharaoh on winning the 2019 Wyoming Jefferson Award. At age nine Jack started ``Jack's Box,'' a charity run by himself and funded through his own hard work. Every year Jack shovels snow, cleans his neighbors' yards, and sells food and drinks at community events to collect money to fund his charity. [[Page E501]] During the holidays, Jack uses this money to deliver Thanksgiving baskets with food and fixings for families in need and on Christmas he buys presents for children who otherwise would go without. The community of Greybull is a better place because of people like Jack and he has inspired others to get involved as well. Again Madam Speaker, I extend my congratulations to Jack Pharaoh for winning the 2019 Wyoming Jefferson Award and I thank him for showing us all what service really means. ____________________
