I am writing to thank you for everything you and the foundation have done for me this year. This past year has been a great learning experience for me, not only on the tennis court, but also with life. The countless trips and events I have attended this year, taught me more valuable information than I have ever learned in my entire life. Thanks to you, I have been able to play the game I love every day at an affordable cost. I greatly appreciate all the trips that I have attended, whether it be for a tournament, or for a vacation, the foundation has made it financially possible for me to go. If you hadn't convinced me to join the day academy last year, there would have been no chance for me to eventually play competitive college tennis. Thanks again for everything you have done for me.
I also wanted to talk to you about the Palm Springs trip. I don't think it would be wise for me to go because I am currently 30 assignments behind in school. I also have three B's, which is unheard of for me, and is really stressing me out. I have been behind since the start of the school year, and would like to spend the two weeks that I have off for winter break to catch up, and to raise my grades so that I won't have to stay up past midnight every weekday just to prevent more work from being added.
