Right Now I set aside my dream of being a nurse and go for the surest thing and that is to be in the program of surgical Technology.  I applied to the Program 3 weeks ago within two weeks I got accepted and it will start in the fall of 2006. Dr. David, I am very great full for what you had done for me to change my life for

the better, when I graduate in the fall of 2007, you will be the first one to know. I would like you, Matt, and   Mrs Lovett to be there. I won't take up all your time but because you have a great deal of changing my life for the better I owed it all to you.(I graduated in 2001)
