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!
