Benjamin Cardin, D-MD
"After 51 years in the field of education—spending 25 years as a faculty member and administrator at the University of Maryland, College Park, president of both the University of Maryland, College Park and The Ohio State University, and now as the chancellor of the University System of Maryland for the past 12 years—Dr. Kirwan will be retiring on June 30, 2015."
National Defense Authorization Act For Fiscal Year 2016 June 17, 2015
John Cornyn, R-TX
"As I have said, we have had some signs of progress. I know Majority Leader McConnell likes to quote Woody Hayes from Ohio State when he talks about the nature of the progress we have made. He said: “Three yards and a cloud of dust.” I like to think of it more as a baseball analogy of singles and an occasional double. But you get the basic point. We are actually beginning to make some progress, and that is why I find so troubling these signs of filibuster summer and this announcement by our Democratic friends."
Honoring Dr. Judy Bonner And Her Commitment To Alabama Girls State June 1, 2015
Bradley Byrne, R-AL
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor Dr. Judy Bonner, President of the University of Alabama, for her leadership and commitment to the Alabama Girls State program. Throughout her career, Dr. Bonner has encouraged young women to set high goals and never give up on their dreams. As a child, her father would cut out articles from newspapers about impressive achievements by women around the world. So from an early age, Dr. Bonner learned to dream beyond the confines of her charming hometown of Camden, Alabama. In 1964, Dr. Bonner was selected by her school to attend Girls State, which was held at Huntingdon College in Montgomery. There she made many friends and learned a great deal about how our state and local governments work. While many things inspired Dr. Bonner over the years, Alabama Girls State certainly made a big impression. Dr. Bonner went on to serve as President of the Future Homemakers of America, was selected as “Most Intelligent” in the Who’s Who of her senior class, and served as editor-in-chief of her high school newspaper, The Tiger Rag. She received her Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees from The University of Alabama and her doctorate from Ohio State University. Girls State helped motivate Dr. Bonner to do great things in her life and to have a positive impact on her community and state. It is only fitting that Dr. Bonner would go on to become the first female President of the University of Alabama and the first female President from a school in the Southeastern Conference. Under her leadership, Dr. Bonner has guided The University of Alabama through record-breaking growth and expansion. University of Alabama System Chancellor Dr. Robert E. Witt is quoted as saying, “I can say firsthand that she is one of the most intelligent, well-focused and forward thinking academic administrators in the nation.” During her tenure at Alabama, Dr. Bonner has continued to play a key role in the Alabama Girls State program. She successfully recruited the American Legion Auxiliary’s Girls State program to the campus of the University of Alabama in 2013. This year, Dr. Bonner will once again have a key impact on the over 350 young women taking part in the Girls State program. Mr. Speaker, I applaud Dr. Bonner for her continued commitment to inspiring and motivating young women in Alabama and across the United States to reach beyond ordinary expectations and never give up on their dreams."
Remembering The Life Of Mr. James Economos May 13, 2015
Tim Ryan, D-OH
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor the life of my dear friend and lifetime Warren, Ohio resident Mr. James Economos. Mr. Economos was highly regarded within the Warren community for his passion for local businesses, community service, and his unwavering dedication to both the Warren G. Harding High School Football Team and the Ohio State Buckeyes. Mr. Economos was born in Warren, Ohio in 1938 and dedicated his life to his family, his church, and his family business. He was a proud graduate of the Warren G. Harding High School and Youngstown State University. Mr. Economos joined the United States Army in 1960 and after nine hard years of commendable service, he was honorably discharged with the rank of Captain in 1969. He married Joan Pompos in May of 1961 and the two were happily married for thirty-three years until her passing in 1995. From 1960 until his passing, Mr. Economos was the owner of Saratoga Restaurant and Catering in Warren, Ohio. His family purchased the business back in 1935. And next year Saratoga Restaurant and Catering will be celebrating its 100th anniversary. In addition to building a successful business, Mr. Economos was very active in his local church and community. He was a member of Parish Council and served three terms as president of the church council at St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church in Warren. James’s service to our country, his dedication to his business, his love for family and friends, and his passion for the Warren G. Harding High School Football Team and the Ohio State Buckeyes, all demonstrate the qualities that made him so special to us. James’s life and legacy contribute to Warren being a better place to live and call home. He is survived by his sisters Dorian, Chrisi, and Jennifer; his son, Eric; his sister Demetra; and four wonderful grandchildren. James was a beloved part of the Warren community and he will be deeply missed."
Remembering Paul Tipps, Ohio Leader April 22, 2015
Tim Ryan, D-OH
"Mr. Speaker, I rise to remember Paul Tipps of Ohio who passed away yesterday afternoon. Paul Tipps was a great leader when political giants dominated Ohio. Paul stepped down as Chairman of the Ohio Democratic Party in 1983, and Democrats with his help held the top five statewide offices, both houses of the state legislature, a majority of the state Supreme Court, and both U.S. Senate seats. Originally from Cincinnati, Paul graduated from the University of Dayton and served as an officer in the U.S. Army. He helped C.J. McLin of Dayton begin his long time career in the state legislature, ran for Congress himself in 1968, and served six years as Chairman of the Montgomery County Democratic Party. C.J.’s daughter Rhine McLin remembers that “Paul understood people and he understood politics.” Paul considered C.J. one of his political mentors along with legendary state House Speaker Vern Riffe and U.S. Senator John Glenn. John Glenn remarked that Paul “did great work as a civic activist through so many years” and that he and Annie Glenn had no better friend. Paul served as Trustee of Wright State University and on the Board of Advisors at Ohio State‘s John Glenn College of Public Affairs. Few have had as many successes as Paul and the secret to Paul’s success was his ability to bring people together. I ask my colleagues to share in the memories of the extraordinary service of Paul Tipps and extend our most sincere condolences to all of Paul’s family and friends."
