ACKNOWLEDGE THE PRINCIPAL, YVONNE EDWARDS AND THE LEAD MENTOR, DARRYL NEWHOUSE. THE FOSHAY LEARNING CENTER ROBOTICS TEAM, NUMBER 597, KNOWN AS THE WOLVERINES, HAS DONE TREMENDOUS WORK IN DISTINGUISHING THEMSELVES FROM OTHER ROBOTICS TEAMS INVOLVED IN THE, QUOTE, "FOR INSPIRATION AND RECOGNITION OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY," OTHERWISE KNOWN AS F.I.R.S.T. THAT IS THE ROBOTICS COMPETITION. THE TEAM CONSISTS OF 25 MEMBERS, 12 OF WHOM HAVE JOINED US THIS MORNING, WHO USE THEIR SKILLS AND THE GUIDANCE OF THEIR LEAD MENTOR, MR. NEWHOUSE, TO BUILD A ROBOT TO PERFORM PRESCRIBED TASKS AT SEVERAL COMPETITIONS. THE WORK EARNED THEM THE REGIONAL CHAIRMAN'S AWARD DURING THE INAUGURAL UTAH REGIONAL FIRST COMPETITION EARLIER THIS YEAR, AND AS A RESULT, THEY WERE INVITED TO PARTICIPATE IN THE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP HELD JUST A FEW MONTHS AGO IN ATLANTA, GEORGIA, TO COMPETE AGAINST 1,800 OTHER TEAMS. THE FIRST ORGANIZATION DISTRIBUTES 26 NATIONAL AWARDS AS A PART OF THIS COMPETITION AND FOSHAY LEARNING CENTER RECEIVED ONE OF THESE AWARDS IN RECOGNITION OF THE EXCELLENCE IN INDUSTRIAL SAFETY. I THINK THAT DESERVES A BIG, A BIG ROUND OF APPLAUSE. [APPLAUSE.]

SUP. RIDLEY-THOMAS: FOSHAY WAS THE ONLY TEAM IN THE COMPETITION WHO REPRESENTED THE LOS ANGELES UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT. ADDITIONALLY, THERE ARE PAST TEAM MEMBERS WHO NOW SERVE AS COLLEGE MENTORS FOR THE TEAM AS WELL AS TO ADULT
