Carlisle Student Thanks PSBR for TSA Essay Contest Sponsorship

Dear Dr. Ellis,

Thank you for granting me the opportunity to participate in the (TSA) Biomedical Research Essay Contest. This was a positive experience. It allowed me to learn more about careers in the biomedical field and to practice my writing skills, an invaluable capability. I was fortunate enough to be a regional winner at my local Technology Student Association competition. Thank you for allowing the Technology Student Association the chance to encourage students to explore the medical field. I hope the Pennsylvania Society for Biomedical Research continues to bestow this opportunity to the Technology Student Association, because it has helped me on my career path and may do the same for others. My plan is to major in biology and pursue a career as a physician’s assistant. Again, thank  you for this opportunity.

Sincerely,

A student from Carlisle, PA
