"Thanks again to you and the school for hosting me yesterday. I had a great time! I also wanted to pass along a note to say how impressed I was with the students. They were consumate professionals in their running of the coffee bar and in the way that they all pitched in to clean up afterward. I was also struck by their attentiveness during the talk. (And with Sasha and her intelligent questions in particular!) You all should be proud!"

- Dr. Anthony Nussmeier, after his talk on "Dante, the Church, & the Literary Unification of Italy"
