To whom it may concern:


It is with great pleasure that I write this letter in support of Aeron Turley. Aeron was my student last fall at OSU for SC 3353, and I have no shortage of kind things to say about her both academically and personally.


From day one, Aeron was always prepared, engaged and eager to learn. What impressed me most about Aeron is her commitment to improving her skills in order to reach her full potential. Aeron is completely open to learning new things and doing whatever it takes to become a better student and professional. She embraces feedback in a way that is meaningful and thoughtful. I cannot recall a time when I gave Aeron feedback that she did not carry through to the next assignment. She regularly stayed late after class and reached out for feedback during the week. Every week, I watched Aeron’s work improve and her skills sharpen. She clearly tackled every assignment with 100 percent dedication, and the result was nothing short of outstanding.


I have also gotten to know Aeron on a somewhat personal level, and have found her to be just as impressive outside the classroom. Although I know it must be difficult, Aeron juggles her education, work and young boys with seemingly the greatest of ease. She is a hard worker, good natured, sweet, humble, and quite frankly, just a very nice person.


Watching Aeron grow as a student and young professional has been one of the most rewarding things I’ve ever experienced. I have no doubt that she will achieve great things for herself and her community. Any professor or employer would be fortunate to have her.
