Testimonials

Words cannot express our joy over the news that J. was awarded the Powell scholarship! It is the 'too good to be true' that is true...so many things led up to this achievement and we are so very proud. Thanks for being a very important part of bringing it all together: I am convinced that you were the key ingredient that helped bring all that he knew, experienced, dreamed of, etc together, helping him to communicate in a clear and interesting (and yes, effective) way. I am sure he feels a bit overwhelmed and likely a bit scared...but this program from the outset of me learning of it seemed perfect for him. I love that he will be in a setting with other serious scholars, he will be mentored and given opportunities to apply what he is learning. Thank you, thank you! Hugs and gratefulness!
