2012 GRADUATING IOWA HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS QUALIFY FOR SPECIAL CONGRESSIONAL RECOGNITION
CONGRESSMAN LATHAM ACCEPTING REQUESTS FOR CONGRESSIONAL CERTIFICATES
Mar 30, 2012 -
Iowa Congressman Tom Latham is offering graduating high school students in Iowa’s 4th Congressional District special congressional certificates of recognition once again this year.
Congressman Latham’s office is accepting requests for the personalized certificates from schools, students and family members. Each certificate of recognition includes the graduate’s name, high school and date of graduation. The certificates are printed on card stock with raised color seals and presented in special folders, and Congressman Latham personally signs each certificate.
“Every year, high school graduates explore new opportunities and confront new challenges as they take an important step toward becoming the next generation of leaders in our communities and in our nation,” Congressman Latham said. “It’s my pleasure to offer my personal congratulations to these graduates on reaching this milestone.”
High schools in Iowa’s 4th Congressional District can request the certificates on behalf of graduating students or requests can come directly from the student or a family member. All requests for graduation certificates, or additional information, should be directed to Amy Malo in Congressman Latham’s Washington office at 202-225-5476 or Amy.Malo@mail.house.gov.
The following information is required to complete the certificates for each student:
- the graduate’s name exactly as it should appear on the certificate
- the high school from which the student is graduating
- the date of the graduation ceremony
- the mailing address to which the certificate should be sent.
If a school or student wishes to have a certificate by the date of the graduation ceremony, requests must be turned in by Monday, April 30. Those who make requests after the deadline will still receive certificates, but they may not arrive until after the student’s graduation ceremony.
