Candace and Aaron,

As I reflect back on the last week, the visit with Spruce Mountain really stands out and I wanted to take a moment to share a thank you and some appreciation for the work you are doing and making the time for me to come and get a glimpse of it.

It was inspiring and encouraging to meet the both of you in person, to meet several integral members of your team and get a feel for the work that Spruce Mountain Inn can offer. After 38 years, I imagine you have seen it all and your experience as a program as well as the tenure of your staff seemed to speak for itself. I feel much clearer on the type of student that would likely work at Spruce and look forward to being in touch and have high hopes to work together in the future.

Please thank your staff for taking the time out of their busy schedules to sit and chat and I look forward to the next time our paths cross again!

If you even have any questions, please reach out anytime.
