I'm writing on behalf of my longtime student, _______________, who has applied for admission in the fall. I have had the pleasure of teaching them each year of high school, and watching them grow in their social and educational path has been a highlight of my career.
As a freshman, _______________ was considered shy and soft-spoken by their peers. But I quickly noticed that, when given the opportunity, _______________ rose to the occasion. _______________ is a natural leader, and I'm not at all surprised that they are finishing up their high school career as class president.
_______________'s passion for the environment is evidenced beyond what can be seen on a list of clubs and activities on an application or student resume. Not only did _______________ lead multiple beach cleanup events by students, but they also mobilized others in the broader community to organize their own, similar events. Their outreach resulted in a domino effect, proving that one person can make a difference by inspiring others.
_______________'s personality and leadership skills are perhaps best evidenced by an incident that occurred when our school's Science Club was on a field trip to the regional maritime museum. It seemed that everything that could go wrong did, from inclement weather to a lost parent chaperone to a grouchy tour guide. _______________ kept spirits high, and we ended the day with a goofy collaborative social media video spearheaded spontaneously by _______________.
I know that you will look at _______________'s grades, standardized test scores, and essay. (They are all stellar.) But please believe me when I tell you that these are only a small snapshot of this amazing young person. They are will truly be an asset to your college.
