Congratulations on your scholarship award. You don’t remember me, but I worked in the Dean’s office with your Mother, and you use to draw pictures for me (when you and your sister would come in with your Mother) and I kept them hung up on my board.
I know you will do well under the instruction of your parents, as business is right up your Mother’s alley, and you have the suit and look down pretty good!
Best wishes as you begin your new journey here at SIUC.
