"Your  participation in the program designed to enhance our girls' ability to become Poised, Responsible, Optimistic, and Mannerly (PROM) was quite impressive. The young ladies will be able to function in a formal dining setting with elegance and grace thanks, in no small part, to you. Your easy manner and engaging style made it easy for our girls to grasp the concepts behind table manners and social graces. 

Again, thank you for your time and attention to detail. We hope to partner with you in future endeavors."
