Dear Mr. Larsen and Members of the Scholarship Foundation,
It is my pleasure to update you regarding Krysta Jones, the Scottish Rite scholarship student who volunteered at the RiteCare Spokane clinic during Winter and Spring terms, 2008 and who will return to work with us through autumn this year.
Krysta has been a joy to work with – an excellent selection by the University staff. She is an organized and capable young woman who is pleasant and professional in all her interactions with staff, families and Board members. She arrives on time, has been flexible as circumstances vary, and has worked diligently and attentively to complete all requested assignments. She has undertaken complex tasks with assurance and enthusiasm and has completed less inspiring tasks with grace. Requiring little supervision, she was a wonderful addition to our team and fit well with our clinicians’ style of work. Her extra set of capable hands made it possible for us to target many additional activities (for kids and for the clinic) each week. Krysta was enjoyed and appreciated by staff, children and families alike.
We thank you again for your regular sponsorship of graduate speech pathology students (who express their appreciation regularly as well) and for the exceptional opportunity you have provided us in having a scholarship student here at RiteCare Spokane. The students who have been selected have been top notch and their assistance here has been very much appreciated. From our perspective, the Scottish Rite Scholarship Program connecting with RiteCare Spokane has certainly been a wonderful success this year and we look forward to continued work with graduate scholarship students in the future. We thank you again.
Michelle Gifford, Clinic Director RiteCare Spokane
