HON. DEAN HELLER

IN THE UNITED STATES SENATE

April 17th, 2012

TackesMr. Heller:  Mr. President, I rise to congratulate Pierron Tackes for being selected as Nevada’s Cherry Blossom Princess for the 2012 Centennial Cherry Blossom Festival.  Ms. Tackes is an accomplished and ambitious student whose unwavering commitment to the Silver State embodies the very essence of what Nevada’s Cherry Blossom Princess should be.

Ms. Tackes is an exemplary constituent, chosen by the Nevada State Society to represent Nevada at the National Conference of State Society’s Cherry Blossom Princess Educational and Cultural Exchange Program.  Nevada is proud to support one of our own as she joins young women from across the nation in this educational and leadership forum that celebrates the enduring friendship between the United States and Japan.  I am proud to recognize Ms. Tackes for her extensive community involvement, educational performance, and passion for our home State.

I join the citizens of Nevada in congratulating Ms. Tackes on this accomplishment and wish her all the best during this cultural and educational event.
