To Whom It May Concern:
I have had the distinct pleasure of having XXX as a student in my debate classes and on my debate team for three years at Eastern Little Hope High School.
XXX has been more than the ideal student. In order to achieve the highest grades and my deepest respect, she has demonstrated outstanding leadership and maintained a clear sense of purpose.
The academics at Eastern Little Hope are most challenging, and XXX fulfilled all the requirements with the added challenge of honors and advanced courses. XXX is an outstanding extemporaneous speaker and debater. She has won many awards on the speech and debate circuits, and qualified for national tournaments. Success in these interscholastic activities requires extensive research and persuasive skills. XXX also holds the degree of Special Distinction, as a member of the National Forensic League.
Due to its nature of metro, state, and national interscholastic competition, the successful high school forensics student serves by not only representing his or her school but also by representing his or her community as well. One of the requirements in my advanced class is to prepare lectures and guidance for the beginners. With XXX’ s superior knowledge and involvement in the political sciences, she developed a strong sense of confidence with a charming attitude. Therefore, I could always depend on her to set the best example as an instructor. Because of her natural leadership abilities, XXX was selected as our Debate Captain. On account of her mature approach to her responsibilities, I often thought of XXX as a colleague.
Since her classmates, my fellow teachers, and I will always hold her in the highest esteem, I sincerely recommend XXX Stone as the ideal candidate for matriculation at Eastern Little Hope State.
