"It was so nice seeing you the other day. It brought back so many memories when I attended L.E.N. I am just so happy and thankful that after 4 years I am still here. Like I always say, It's all because of you, Tom, and Nancy (Oh yeah and AppleOne) lol. I honestly enjoy coming to work in the morning. Thanks again for everything you all instilled in me."

"Thank you for what you are doing.

Thank you for your passion and dedication. 

For patience, love, and care that you give to each student.

I really enjoyed my four months at school.  It was challenging, interesting, knowledgeable, and very pleasant experience.  I was inspired to continue moving to my dream with an open positive mind, and a bouquet of new skills.

Thank you again for sharing your knowledge and helping people to change their lives!"
