I hope this e-mail finds you well! I just wanted to tell you thank you for helping shape me into the person I am today through Cotillion. For eight years, I was involved in Cotillion and I loved every single minute of it. I recall memories of my days on that dance floor from time to time. As a college student, I am put in situations where those skills I learned through Cotillion have been a tremendous help and have even saved me from embarrassing moments at times.
A few weeks ago, I attended a reception for a leadership program that I am participating in. When I arrived, we were told to write our names on name tags and then mingle with everyone there. Senators, Business Representatives, and NCSU Faculty were all in attendance. When I went to put the name tag on, I immediately placed it on my right side. I then started looking around and noticed that everyone else was divided when it came to placing their name tags. I think it was one of those situations where whoever got their name tag first placed it on the left side and then everyone followed behind.
I know this is a simple example but I immediately thought of you and Cotillion. The lessons and values I learned have followed me and continue to be useful years after I finished serving as a marshal. Thank you again and I hope to see you soon!
