Hi Attiya,


Hope you are well. I just had some wonderful news that I wanted to share with you and Latif. Justin graduated over the weekend from St. Anselm College. In addition to graduating Summa Cum Laude and receiving two major areas at the Honors Convocation on Friday night, during the Commencement on Saturday he was awarded the college's Chancellor's Medal, which is given to the graduating student with the highest Grade Point Average. (As the college does not rank, we did not know he would be graduating #1!) Yes, he graduated first out of 417 students. We are so proud of him.


I wanted to share this great news with you as I know that you and Latif have played a part in Justin's great accomplishments. Thank you so much for the assistance you gave him during high school. From you SAT prep classes, Justin not only was able to improve his SAT scores, but he learned new studying and critical thinking skills and really gained new confidence in himself and his abilities.   Your assistance in the college application process was invaluable.  You helped make a typically stressful time more manageable. As you know he was accepted to all the schools he applied to with wonderful merit scholarships. Ultimately, he accepted St. Anselm College's offer which included being in the Honor's Program. It was the perfect place for him.


Thank you so much for helping Justin start on the right path at St. Anselm College. We are very proud of his wonderful accomplishments.
