Our daughter Mesah, a 5th grade honor roll student, has been selected to travel to Europe as a student ambassador with the People to People Student Ambassador program. Students are nominated based on grades, test scores, teacher referrals, and community involvement. We are so proud of her!
While this is a great opportunity, it is not a free opportunity. The tuition cost for Mesah to have this experience is over $5,000.
We are asking you to please assist us in providing this once in a lifetime opportunity for Mesah by making a monetary donation to cover her tuition. No amount is too small and every donation is a blessing and greatly appreciated.
Below is Mesah's acceptance letter into the program. We also invite you to learn more about the program by visiting www.peopletopeople.com.
Thank you in advance for your support.
November 18, 2014,
Dear Mesah Jones,
Congratulations on your acceptance to join the People to People Student Ambassador Tale of Two Cities: London and Paris delegation for the summer of 2015. Being selected as a Student Ambassador is a life-changing experience that will change your view of the world forever. I am so happy to have you join us on this educational journey.
President Dwight D. Eisenhower once said, “I like to believe that people in the long run are going to do more to promote peace than our government.” He believed the path to peace was paved by shared experiences and understanding. He founded the People to People movement because he believed that ordinary citizens of different nations could solve their problems and live harmoniously with one another.
As a Student Ambassador, you have the unique opportunity to reach out to the world in the spirit of President Eisenhower’s vision. Along the way, you will learn about new cultures, travel to new places, and forge new friendships. The world is a large, complex place, but through participation in this program, I believe you will discover that you are capable of conquering any challenges that may come your way.
Though your nomination brought you to our organizations attention, it was your interview that confirmed your selection as one of this year’s elite People to People Student Ambassadors. It is clear that you possess the seeds of a potential global leader – and we are looking forward to helping you grow into the person you want to become.
I am proud to welcome you to the People to People Student Ambassador Program family. During your program, you will see the world and yourself through new eyes, and I am confident you will make memories and friendships to last a lifetime. This is the beginning of an amazing journey – I hope you enjoy the ride!
All my best,
