Dear Mr. Park,

One of my former students Joffre David has applied for The University Club Scholarship, and I wish to recommend him very highly to you.

He has unusual mental ability and has proved that in High School by making unusually high grades. Faced by numerous handicaps, he has nonetheless, overcome them and has made for himself an enviable record. His part in extra-curricular activities suggest that he has the inclination and ability to mix well with his fellow man. His attitude toward life is wholesome, and I know all who know him at O. H. S. respect him very highly.

Joffre needs the scholarship very much indeed, and unless he obtains some financial aid, his entrance in the University is very doubtful.

In conclusion, may I congratulate you on the young men you have thus far honored with your scholarships, and assure you that I am one who appreciates your splendid work in helping needy boys secure a college education.

Sincerely and Respectfully,

D. R. Matthews

Chairman, English Department

Orlando Senior High School
