“No words could possibly express how grateful I am for having the opportunity to have Diane Bass come out to my health classes today and present information on “Teen Survival Skills.” She surpassed my expectations and I wanted to take a few moments to thank you for scheduling the presentation today.
The power point had very useful, unique information but the real gift to us was Diane, herself. What an articulate, engaging human being! My students absolutely loved her! I have never seen them so attentive for a guest speaker. Diane answered all of their questions, even the hypothetical ones, with an impressive knowledge of the law and in a manner understandable by 18 year olds. I was personally in awe of her speaking talent—it is obvious that she is very good at what she does for a living! It made me want to go work in her office!
We kept her for 90 minutes both periods and would have gone longer, if the bell had not rung! I have Diane’s contact information so I can schedule her again in the Fall for my new classes.
On behalf of the seniors at UHS, thank you so much.”
