Good Morning Mr. Bell,

I hope all is well.

First of all,  I would like to congratulate you and your Initiative on putting together such a wonderful event!!!  Our students thoroughly enjoyed themselves and many had an opportunity to engage in conversation with representatives from a career or school they had an interest in.  Our teachers were also very impressed with the variety of information available and college tables set up!!  Again, a great job!!!  So glad we attended!

Thank you so much!
