                           HON. MIKE THOMPSON

                             of california

                    in the house of representatives

                        Friday, October 27, 2000

  Mr. THOMPSON of California. Mr. Speaker, today I recognize Rosaura 
Segura-Lopez, the recipient of the Napa County Hispanic Network 
Lifetime Achievement Award. Ms. Segura-Lopez is an outstanding member 
of the community and has worked tirelessly to improve the conditions of 
low-income housing and public education for migrant farmworkers.
  Recognizing a great need, Rosaura Segura-Lopez established the 
Immigration Services Office in St. Helena with a credit card in March, 
1989. Since then, she has served as a board member of the St. Helena 
Public School Foundation from 1990 to 1993 and has worked on the County 
of Napa Grand Jury for the Fiscal Year 1991-1992. Also, since 1994, she 
has been a member of the Boys & Girls Club Board of Directors. In 
addition, Ms. Segura-Lopez acts as Vice-President and Sponsor for 
``Club Los Haro'' which raises funds for her birthplace, Los Haro in 
Zacatecas, Mexico.
  As a child, Rosaura vividly remembers how tired her father, a 
farmworker, was when he arrived home in the evenings. This prompted her 
to become involved with the Migrant Farmworker Committee and she has 
served as its Chairperson since 1994. She has been selected to serve on 
the Napa County Housing Committee, which has the task of gathering data 
and making recommendations regarding the update of the County's Housing 
Element and has been named Vice-Chair of the newly formed Napa County 
Farmworker Housing Oversight Committee.
  In April 1999, Rosaura Segura-Lopez was honored with an award from 
the California Human Development in recognition of Community Business 
for Excellent Service Provided to the Community.
  Mr. Speaker, it is appropriate at this time that we recognize Ms. 
Rosaura Segura-Lopez for her dedication and commitment to worthwhile 
causes, as she is an inspiration to everyone. For these reasons, it is 
necessary that we honor this woman for her continuing distinguished 
service to the people of Saint Helena and all of Napa County,
