To whom it may concern:

In addition to my role as Vice President of Communications for Cherokee Nation Businesses, I also serve as an adjunct professor at OSU Tulsa. Aeron Traylor was a student of mine in two different classes in the School of Media and Strategic Communications, starting in the fall of 2011. Since then, I’ve also become proud to call Aeron my friend.

Aeron was a talented, diligent student, and I’m sure she will also be a talented and diligent worker. Aeron learns quickly and responds extremely well to feedback. She is eager and open to learning new things improving her work. Aeron often stayed after class to talk about her assignments and ask how she could make them better. Even after I was no longer her professor, Aeron would still reach out for guidance to become the best professional she could possibly be.

On a personal note, Aeron is the single mother of two children and both parents are deceased. Her will to succeed and work her way through college without much outside help has always impressed me beyond measure. Even after OSU dropped the strategic communication program from the Tulsa campus and Aeron needed to travel to Stillwater to finish her degree, she kept going. Nothing got in her way of graduating.

Aeron Traylor is simply one of the hardest working young people I know. No matter the personal or professional odds, Aeron always finds a way to persevere and succeed.

I sincerely hope you will consider Aeron for the position for which she has applied. I am confident she will impress you the way she has impressed me.
