Entry Title Date
Highway Trust Fund July 22, 2014
Lamar Alexander, R-TN
"Leopoldo was born in Venezuela and comes from a patriotic Venezuelan family, but he was educated in the United States which is where I met him. I met him when he was a student at Kenyon College. In fact, I made the graduation speech, when I was Secretary of Education, to the class in which he graduated, and he was a friend of my son who was also a student. I watched him over the years. He went on to Harvard and obtained a master’s degree at the Kennedy School. He could have stayed in the United States and had a very successful career, but he chose instead to return to the country he loved, Venezuela. He was elected mayor of a municipality at the age of 28 in an important area outside of Caracas. Four years later he was reelected with 81 percent of the vote. He is a rising star in Venezuela. There is no brighter star rising in the skies of Venezuela."
Legislative Session July 21, 2014
Ted Cruz, R-TX
"Every American should take an interest in Mr. Lopez’s fate. Not only is he a good friend to our country, having attended both Kenyon College and Harvard, he also advocates the sort of political and economic reforms that would return Venezuela to its historic place as a close partner to the United States, a development that would be of great advantage in our hemisphere."

A Tribute To The Life Of Charles Newel “Chuck” Huggins September 21, 2012
Anna Eshoo, D-CA
"Charles Newel Huggins, known to everyone as Chuck, served his nation during WWII as an Army Paratrooper with the 513th Parachute Infantry Regiment and participated in battles throughout Europe. He graduated from Kenyon College, and with his wife Mime moved to Menlo Park, California, where he began working for See’s Candies which would be his career for 55 years. He helped sell the company to Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Company in 1972, and was appointed President and CEO of the See’s Division.
