Dear Rick,

Thank you for helping Sydney get where she is in her college application process. Leslie and I are thrilled she is committing to Colgate and believe it is a great fit for her. I really appreciate your personal attention to my daughter and family. We are confident that Sydney will feel at home at Colgate and thrive academically and in athletics. Of our three daughters I was always most concerned for Sydney. We are very happy she is participating in the official signing next week. Thanks again for all your guidance and counsel during the past year. We look forward to working with you with Shannon and Cassie over the next few years.

Best regards,
