This past week, Victoria Bossone, a senior at New Milford High School received the 25th Raymond “Hap” Harrison Scholarship. The scholarship is named for Adam Leitman Bailey’s Track and Cross Country Coach in High School, who he credits much of his success to in regards to not only running but for what he has accomplished in his career. Ms. Bossone was chosen out of all New Milford High School students by the Guidance Department to be a paid intern at Adam Leitman Bailey. She has decided to attend Monmouth University and major in Speech Pathology.
“I was planning on thanking you for everything you have done for me today in person, yet I unfortunately missed you at the end of the day. Although my time here is not finished, I figured now would be an appropriate time to express my gratitude for you and the opportunity you have gifted me, since I will no longer be here when you return from your well-deserved vacation. I will never be able to verbalize how grateful I am that I am one of the few lucky high school students who possess the honor of saying they have worked with you for a summer. Whether you were conscious of it or not, you have not only demonstrated to me the ins and outs of how a successful office and individual functions, but also numerous life lessons I will forever carry with me to better my future. I am beyond thankful that I was selected for this incredible opportunity. Not only have you been a mentor to me, but you have given me a genuine insight into the working world I will eventually become a part of. I know I will see you soon and of course will thank you then once more, but till then from the bottom of my heart thank you so much for this amazing experience.”
