[Dear Miss Snell,]

[I am just one of the many who welcome this opportunity to honor you, and to thank you. We honor you for your many contributions to Ursinus, and to education - particularly physical education. Your lessons in coaching, in skills and techniques, in sportsmanship, in leadership, in fair competition, and in English grammar(!) have been appreciated by your many students, and by the students they have taught.]

[Personally, I thank you for being the individual most responsible for helping and motivating me to become a teacher and coach. Your inspiration, your example and your interest led me to the very happy and satisfying life which I now enjoy.]

[Best wishes to you for many more years of enjoyment and success.]

[Very sincerely,]

[Jane Brusch]
