LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION honoring Maureen McTigue upon the occasion of her
designation for special recognition by the Poppenhusen Institute

WHEREAS,  From  time to time this Legislative Body takes note of certain
extraordinary individuals  it  wishes  to  recognize  for  their  valued
contributions  to  the  success  and  progress  of  society and publicly
acknowledge their endeavors which have enhanced the basic humanity among
us all; and
  WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its  long-
standing  traditions,  this  Legislative  Body  is justly proud to honor
Maureen McTigue upon the occasion of her designation for special  recog-
nition  by  the  Poppenhusen  Institute,  to be celebrated at its Spring
Dinner on Saturday, May 11, 2013, in College Point, New York; and
  WHEREAS, Maureen McTigue has been a member of the Poppenhusen communi-
ty since joining the Ki Do Kwan martial arts group over  10  years  ago;
after training for some years, she was asked to take over the children's
martial  arts  and body movement program and has served in that role for
over five years; and
  WHEREAS, Twice a week, Maureen McTigue enthusiastically instructed the
youth in various Asian modalities, exposing them to different  cultures;
through her disciplined instructions, the participants developed mental-
ly,  physically,  and spiritually, benefiting them not only in the work-
shop, but also in their schoolwork and in everyday life; and
  WHEREAS, Maureen McTigue's involvement at the Institute was all encom-
passing; she truly became a Poppenhusen team member by participating  in
numerous  annual  events,  including  marching  each year in the College
Point Memorial Day Parade, joining with her students on her time off  to
demonstrate  Tae  Kwan  Do and Tai Chi techniques to the patients at the
local nursing homes, and participating in  the  Poppenhusen  Institute's
Haunted House event; and
  WHEREAS,  Maureen  McTigue  is  presently  a teacher in New York City,
after having worked in pop culture publishing for some time; she  is  an
accomplished  traveler  and  photographer  and  this summer will hold an
exhibit, alongside an old college friend,  of  photos  from  around  the
world; and
  WHEREAS,  A  true  asset  to  society, Maureen McTigue's distinguished
record merits the recognition and respectful tribute of this Legislative
Body; now, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause  in  its  deliberations  to
honor  Maureen  McTigue upon the occasion of her designation for special
recognition by the Poppenhusen Institute; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Maureen McTigue.
