"Thanks again for your work on this project…the outcomes have been truly impressive!"

"I wanted to let you know that the day was tremendous and very successful. I went to six presentations and saw very different lessons at each one. Everyone did a great job. I appreciate all your hard work as well as your vision that enabled EVERY Civics student in the Valley to have a guest speaker … lawyer … in their classroom. That is a HUGE feat! I would hazard a guess to say MAYBE 1/4 of those teachers would normally be able to get a lawyer to visit their classroom. Your dream touched everyone this way."

"Carol, Kathleen and I would like to report that the Rule of Law Seminar went well at Northside Middle. After a few (weather-related) schedule issues were worked out, everything ran smoothly. We would love to have the event scheduled again for this fall. Also, I plan on sending each participant/volunteer a thank you card as a token of our appreciation."

"Thank you again for allowing me to participate in the VBA Rule of Law Project. I enjoyed spending time with the kids. I received a thank you card in the mail today and I was very touched. You mentioned that you plan on branching the project out to other parts of Virginia; please keep me in mind when you do. I would love to offer my assistance. Thanks again!"
