I could write pages and pages ...

Westminster School had such a great impact on me.  I could write pages and pages about how my experience at Westminster has shaped me into the person I am today, but above all I value the outstanding education I received, the great study habits I learned, the proper etiquette in important formal situation, and the excellent writing skills I acquired. 

You really helped bring me out of my shell and give me self-confidence in the 7th and 8th grade plays, and I am very grateful for that because I am no longer afraid to speak in front of large groups, like I did this summer at Virginia Girls State.  You have also sparked my interest in the liberal arts, and I feel that if I had attended any other school I would not have developed such a passion.  Westminster school did not just prepare me for success in high school; the lessons I learned there will serve me well for the rest of my life.
