~ and others!
"Just wanted to say thank you for getting us thru college apps and into UT !! We could NOT have done it without you. You kept these girls on track without a worry on our end and we are so grateful.
"Cassie, I wanted to thank you for all your help with L. He has gotten into all of his colleges...and received a total of $62k in scholarships. It's largely due to you leading him through the process. Thank you."
"I can't thank you enough for everything you have done for B and really our entire family. You took so much stress out of the selection and application process. We never hesitate to recommend you to other parents. M and I have discussed that paying for your services is some of the best money we have ever spent."
"Thank you so much, Cassie!! You were amazing to work with, and we can’t thank you enough for all of your help/support for B. He will be finishing summer school classes @ A&M next week, and then the real fun begins for the Corps of Cadets - freshman orientation! I will be back in touch in about a year to work with his younger brother..."
"Thank you so much Cassie.. you have made this process so easy for us, we are truly blessed to have had you in our lives!"
"Thank you so much for working with M on the college application process! You took the stress of the process down several levels, and we will be sure to recommend your services to others."
"Thank you so much for all of your help Cassie! None of it would have been possible without you!! "
"Thank you so much for the help! I can’t stress enough how much more easy and enjoyable you made the college application and decision process for me."
"I just wanted to take a moment and tell you thank you for pushing me and helping me out through my applications. I know we have a lot more to do, but you really motivated me to do good and to not lose hope. Thank you!"
"Thank you so much for helping me with my college essay. Without your help, I would not be able to attend my favorite university."
"Thank you so much for all of your help! I could not have applied to multiple colleges and written amazing essays without your help. All of your love and support is very appreciated!
From former students...
"You've empowered me as a student, and have given me someone I can look up to. I do not think I would be where I am today without your influence in my life."
"You have a way of empowering kids to stay motivated and follow their dreams. The life lessons I learned from will impact me for years beyond school."
"You have been the only teacher to this date that has made essay writing bearable and easy for me. You really helped me with the college essays for my college applications, and I got into the school and major I wanted."
"Mrs. Friend is the kind of person you want in your life in this season of choosing colleges, but she is also a person you'll come to want in all of your seasons in life. I'll spend much of my life thanking her for what she did for me."
"Mrs. Friend helped me with all my concerns about college. I can say confidently that without her guidance, I would not be as organized or prepared for college."
"Mrs. Friend made me want to go off to college, and she made me want to graduate from high school. I wasn’t very good at school in general, and I skipped a lot. She helped me excel in English like I never have before. I couldn’t honestly thank Mrs. Friend enough for being the best teacher I’ve ever had.
"Mrs. Friend has been such a positive impact. She is genuine and she really cares about everyone."
"She supported me and successfully prepared me for the large world that we live in."
