Dear Ms. Vasquez:

Arnold Stevens was a student in three of my travel courses since the
Fall 1978 semester. He was always an outstanding student.

Mr. Stevens demonstrated his thorough grasp of the subject matter in his
class performance as well as written work. His assignments were always
executed with conscientiousness and punctuality. Moreover, he was
enthusiastic participant in class discussions and helped to make the
courses rewarding experiences for everyone else involved.

Therefore, I can recommend Mr. Stevens, without hesitation, for the
position of assistant in your travel agency.

Yours truly,

Jack Alder
