High School Seminar- Etiquette and Interview Preparation Class 

Dear Mrs. Merrill,  
Thank you for all your guidance and especially your thoughtfulness. Your thoughtfulness has taught me to be more patient and understanding when I interact with others. Your etiquette workshops have reinstalled the value of presentation and have taught me to appreciate my image. I will continue to use your rules and guidance. I can already see the value of your workshops. 

Thank you again.

Dear Mrs. Merrill,

I am sending this letter to inform you of my recent appointment with the college FIDM (Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising). I met with my new counselor there and we talked throughly of the school and why I wanted to go there. She told me afterwards how polite I had been and how impressed she was with my manners and self presentation.
