This letter was passed along by Program Manager Lance Edminister of KidsPeace Mesabi Academy in Buhl, Minnesota. They young man wanted it to go to the "person in charge" and was very sincere in his desire to have this associate receive recognition of his great work with the kids.
Vice President of Mesabi Academy:
I have somewhat of an unexpected request. My one on one (Mr. Lenzen) has done a remarkable job since I have been here. I cannot explain how well he does at his job. However, I can say that he is a big part of why I am so successful in my treatment. The people who work on our unit are the people who change lives. I could not have done this without Mr. Lenzen. I do not know you, so I do not how supportive you will be of this letter. But I made a decision that if I am being recognized for my work, then he should be too. He is a great staff and a great person. I am not sure how he can be recognized, but I hope you will possibly find some way to do so. Thank you for reading my letter.
