Well, here's what this former student of mine, who is currently in her second year at UW-Madison, did:
- She emailed the girl.
- She phoned.
- She visited her here in Chicago.
- And then, she invited the girl to visit Madison for a three-day weekend.
Her classmates were amazed. Hearing about the classes and the dorms and sorority life, one girl said, with just a hint of jealousy, "That ... sounds ... so ... cool."
So, anyway, I'd like to say a great big THANK YOU to Summer. I think you've inspired an entire class of high school juniors with your generosity and time.
