Hello Donna,

I am happy to represent the Jackson School and extend a sincere Thank You to you, John, and the wonderful folks at CSL. Your planning and considerations for our convocation needs last Thursday were impressive. Many people commented about the beautiful venue and the excellent sound system. We even put the Tranquility Room to good use by a grateful spouse (and baby) of one of our main speakers. All in all, it was a highly successful event and we appreciate your efforts to help make it so!

Thank you... CSL staff who worked to make our convocation a positive tribute to our graduating students and their families.

Warm regards,


Joni Marts, Academic Adviser
