  • 7. Testimonials • “Just wanted you to know that I've learned a lot from the course--and since at 81, I'm what you could call a computer dinosaur, no one is more surprised than I am about that!” • “Kudos to you and Wake for doing this, and I hope you will offer other courses in the future--how about a short course on desktop publishing?” • “ It is exciting for me to connect to other WFU parents in this way. I am so impressed with Wake’s focus on well being, personal growth and development and its culture that I am now just as committed to the school. I am passionate about helping this age group discover how they will make their mark in the world. Being connected to the school through this course is meaningful to me.”
