Thanks for including Bethlehem Haven and Ambiance Boutique in your advertising class projects this semester. I enjoyed all of the 10 presentations. It was obvious that your students approached the project seriously. I was impressed with how effectively they articulated their ideas and how enthusiastically they defended their positions. They offered some innovative insights from which both organizations can benefit.

Please pass on my thanks and congratulations to your students.
Hopefully, some of your future classes can also help us with some additional refreshing ideas.
