Dear Dr. Lederberg,
I am a graduating senior from the class of '97, who has been selected to receive an Alumni Scholarship in your name. I would like to thank you and also tell you a little about myself:
Next term, I will be attending Harvard University. My intended major is actually Biology, so I see we have similar interests, and I hope to become either a doctor or a researcher. Yours would be a wonderful example to follow -- I know something about you from a friend who interviewed you a while ago; isn't that a coincidence?
Well, thank you again. It's really nice to receive a Dr Joshua Lederberg Award, out of all awards. I hope you have enjoyed this letter. Best wishes!
Sincerely,
Amy Wang.
