We wish to thank you and the ILC for the amazing opportunity given to our son this summer to experience the Yale Grand Strategy course, and visit the college campuses of Princeton, U Penn, Columbia and Yale within a detailed, well planned, well – chaperoned itinerary from door to door by Lori Nardone and at times, other adults including yourself.
The exceptional a to z support provided by Don Gosney, from the professional photos, Blogging 101 instruction and travel store, to being the door to door chaperone for the preliminary luncheon at the Claremont Hotel, and for providing the almost 4000 pages of pre-program reading from over 18 sources in a spiral bound note book, or down loaded onto a Kindle, spoke very clearly to all of us how seriously the ILC views the selection and success of its program participants.
Our son returned after his 20 day trip East tired, but more confident, and with a deeper understanding of himself and the world around him. We are just beginning the college application process, however Matt now has a better idea of what is important to him in a college education, and he is open to looking beyond California borders to find a good fit.
Thank you again, Mr Ramsey and the ILC, for your generous gifts to the students chosen from the WCCUSD, for this incredible educational opportunity.
Phyllis and Daniel Lee
