Entry Title Date
Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act Of 2011—Motion To Proceed April 25, 2012
Joe Manchin, D-WV
"As secretary of state from 2000 to 2004, in which position I was proud to serve in my great State of West Virginia, I made it a priority to educate young people all over West Virginia on the electoral process and to encourage them to get involved. At that time very few people knew that if someone was 17 years of age and would turn 18 years of age before the general election, they could still vote in a primary at 17. So we educated them and we went around to every school. To make the goal a reality, we established a program called Sharing History and Reaching Every Student, or the acronym SHARES, a program which was tremendously successful. I am proud to say, during my tenure, we registered 42,000 high school students to vote. Eleven years after the SHARES Program began, it is my privilege to stand on the Senate floor and recognize a school that is truly committed to carrying on this tradition and passing it down to each senior class and generation that has come after them. I am so pleased they have joined me in the gallery today."

Pat Tiberi, R-OH
"Madam Speaker, I rise today to recognize the Bishop Hartley High School football team. I am proud to recognize a school that not only excels in academics but also distinguishes itself on the football field. The Bishop Hartley football team is the 2010 Ohio Division IV state champions. The Hawks’ victory in the championship game capped a successful season. Led by head coach, Brad Burchfield, Bishop Hartley finished the season with a 34-13 win over Chagrin Falls, making this the Hawks’ first championship win since 1986. The entire Bishop Hartley community should be proud of this momentous occasion. I offer my congratulations to Coach Burchfield, Principal Michael Winters, the Hawks football team, students and supporters. I know each one of them will treasure the memories of their championship season and I commend them for this truly great achievement."
