Today marks an historical event for our community and the School District of Janesville. We congratulate Janesville Alumni and Congressman, Mr. Paul Ryan, on his recent election as Speaker of the House of Representatives for the United States of America. We wish to thank Mr. Speaker for his commitment to our local schools and our community throughout his political career. This nomination evidences the positive contributions he has made to our country and the respect he achieved among his constituents and his peers.
His success is also evidence that excellence can be obtained through hard work, determination and unwavering focus on what is most important. The School District of Janesville is proud to be an influence in Paul's life. The School District of Janesville has adopted the philosophy of achieving excellence across our schools and continues to remain committed to achieving our goal of excellence in education for every student.
Our teachers and our students continue to impact the direction of history through their endeavors. We are proud to have one of our local teachers actively witnessing and documenting this momentous occasion. Craig High School History Teacher Ryan Masterson is attending the swearing in ceremony for Speaker of the House and will be sharing this occasion with our students across the District through video and photo presentations that will become an informative narrative for posterity.
We are excited to have such wonderful representation of our local community making such a tremendous impact on our nation's history and the School District of Janesville wishes Speaker of the House Paul Ryan all the best in his new role!
