During my two years at the Missouri Academy, Dr. Cleo Samudzi helped me through the college application process by helping me choose a university that turned out to be a very good fit for me, and taught me a lot of the basic ethics that some of my current college classmates never formally learned.
As a first-generation college student, I initially had very little idea on how to structure my essays, put together college applications, write resumes, and simply apply to competitive schools. His (Dr. Samudzi) guidance and expertise expanded what I believed I was capable of achieving.
You have taught me to become a responsible adult and given me the courage to strive for excellence in academics and in life. I am truly grateful for your dedicated leadership, educational expertise and personalize connections.
