    Shannon really enjoyed your AP Geography class. Your field trips,
    and lectures were relevant to real life experiences that she can
    relate to now and in the future.

    Shannon appreciated your military service. Her father was an offier
    during Viet-nam.

    Congradulations:

    Shannon, Jim, and Carol Kelly

    Congratulations Mr. Parker!

    As Evan started to receive Acceptance Letters from the Colleges he applied to, one of the things that they mentioned as impressive and helped set him apart was his attendance at the National Youth Leadership Forum on National Security for which you nominated him. We will be forever grateful.

    Your courses on Military History and International Relations have been among his favorite at St. Margaret’s.

    Congratulations again … well deserved!

    Evan and Madelaine Skenderian
