Ciani, Ph.D. (Instructor at Capella University) said: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>“ To Whom It May Concern: I am writing to provide my strongest support for Laura Smith. I have known Laura Smith for approximately one year, as she was a student in a class that I instructed during 2010 (Learning Theories in Psychology, Capella University). Laura was an exemplary student that demonstrated a strong command of learning theory and a scholarly writing style. Laura’s background in education combined with her strong interest in educational research will provide a great foundation to pursue a career in this field. In all my interactions with Laura Smith, I have been impressed by her drive and work ethic.” June 30, 2011 </li></ul></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>[email_address] </li></ul><ul><li>Elizabeth Koman, Ph.D. (Instructor at Capella University) said: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>“ This letter is for Ms. Laura Smith. I had the pleasure of having Ms. Smith in my Integrative Project course during the Spring quarter of 2011. Laura clearly demonstrated her academic ability and professionalism throughout this course. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Throughout the course Laura actively participated with her fellow classmates. She always found ways to provide professional and helpful feedback to other learners. The Integrative Project course has a requirement for the students to develop a research proposal as their final project. It’s a rather large assignment and is considered the capstone for the masters degree program. Laura not only met the requirement she exceeded the basic requirements by theorizing a model with numerous variables and also designed a study to test the model. Her paper included a well developed and thorough literature review and well developed support (synthesized literature) for her argument. Her final paper demonstrated her ability to both think and write like a scholar. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>In sum, the work I observed from Ms. Smith was always professional, courteous, well developed and well done .”  July 13, 2011 </li></ul></ul>

  12. 12. <ul><li>[email_address] </li></ul><ul><li>Marty Sikes, VP, R.C. Simpson, Inc. said: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>“ Laura and I worked together with the children at First Baptist Church of Weddington and her dedication to the children and her willingness to go over and beyond what were required were impressive.
