"Hey Brett... I am a part of the student body you spoke to today at Three Rivers High School. I am a marketing/DECA student, but didn't get to take part in shaking your hand or talking with you, since I entered the program a little late; I knew what was going on, but didn't know about the "backstage" pass. I wanted to tell you how much we all appreciated you coming in today, and that most of us did in fact get something useful out of the program. Have a good holiday! =) "
