Mr. TANCREDO. Mr. Speaker, today, I have the pleasure of celebrating a
young person from my district, Simon Hakob Maghakyan, who was elected
executive vice president of the Sigma Phi Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa.

Phi Theta Kappa is the international honor society for two-year
colleges. Membership is based on academic achievement and members are
also provided opportunities for growth and development in scholarship,
leadership, fellowship and service.

Simon is attending Arapahoe Community College with a major in general
science, with plans to transfer to University of California at Los
Angeles. Given his demonstrated dedication to academics and hard work,
I have no doubt he will be successful in all of his endeavors.

Mr. Speaker, it is my distinct pleasure to honor Mr. Maghakyan here
today, and wish him all the best in his future endeavors.
