As you probably know, this years theme at SBMS, is "because of them us, because of us them". Your act of kindness, really highlights this. I became a part of the middle school family in 8th grade. I have learned more about myself and the world around me in just that one year than all the other years in my life combined. I truly believe that Santa Barbara Middle School can change a person for the better. It is people like you who have made life changing oppurtunites for people in the past, and will continue to make new opportunities for people to come in the future. Calling your gift thoughtful is an understatement. Thank you for affecting and changing so many peoples lives, both of the past and the future. I am beyond grateful for your work and existence.
