Dear Jim:

On behalf of the community of Mancelona, Mancelona Public Schools, and Communities In Schools of Mancelona, please accept our deep appreciation and profound thanks for your commitment of time and energy. Your three-day (plus) visit to our school and community has profoundly effected, and forever changed our understanding of our children, youth and families. We have no doubt that you have also deeply touched the individual lives of many of our students.

Words cannot adequately express the importance of your powerful and personal message to young people. In these times of ever-dwindling resources, and ever-escalating societal stress placed on our children and youth, your message is both vital and empowering.

We are determined to use your visit as a catalyst in order to follow through with the vision you instilled in us all, the vision of a community that believes “that every child should feel safe, valued, and loved”. This will be our rallying cry and our mantra from this point forward.

Thank you again for all that you do. We sill keep you informed of our progress, and fully intend to ask you back so that you can share in the rewards, and the fruit of your labor of love.
