[Page H5120] From the Congressional Record Online through the Government Publishing Office [www.gpo.gov] HONORING BLAKE HURST (Mrs. WAGNER asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute.) Mrs. WAGNER. Madam Speaker, I rise today to honor the tremendous service of a leader in Missouri agriculture, Mr. Blake Hurst. Starting out as a young farmer in northwest Missouri, Blake rose through the ranks of the Missouri Farm Bureau to become a statewide board member, vice president, and, finally, president in 2010. Over his tenure, Blake brought the organization to new heights and developed a national reputation for his expertise in agriculture policy. After decades of service, Blake plans to retire this year and spend more time on his farm with his loving wife, Julie, and their beautiful family. Madam Speaker, I thank Blake for his unwavering support for Missouri farmers and wish him the very best as he begins this new chapter in his life. ____________________
