U.S. Rep. Paul Broun, R-Athens, is host­ing a “Cof­fee with your Con­gress­man” event at Square Perk Café in Cov­ing­ton at 8 a.m. Mon­day.

The con­gress­man will have a ques­tion-and-an­swer ses­sion for the pub­lic and will also honor Mor­gan Stew­ard, the 5-year-old Newton County boy with spinal mus­cu­lar at­ro­phy who was re­cently sworn in as a Cov­ing­ton po­lice of­fi­cer and had a spe­cial celebration on the square held in his honor.

Broun and fel­low U.S. Rep. Hank John­son, D-Litho­nia, sub­mit­ted Mor­gan’s story to the Con­gres­sional Record, the of­fi­cial record of the pro­ceed­ings of the U.S. Congress.

“It is my honor to ac­knowl­edge Mor­gan Stew­ard for his brave ser­vice to his com­mu­nity as a po­lice of­fi­cer,” Broun said in his sub­mis­sion to the Con­gres- sional Record. “I want to also com­mend this young man for set­ting the high­est ex­am­ple of coura­geous­ness while fac­ing such se­ri­ous ad­ver­si­ties.

“Those who know Mor­gan rec­og­nize him for his con­stant smile and pos­i­tive at­ti­tude. On be­half of the United States Congress, I com­mend young Of­fi­cer Mor­gan for his ser­vice and thank him for the ex­cep­tional ex­am­ple he sets for all who face med­i­cal hard­ships.”
