I am writing this letter to send in all my graduation announcements, as I am not having a graduation party, but would like to update my family that I don't exactly stay in constant contact with. Also, I want this to be as formal and polite as possible, and generically personal.
I know that sounds kind of confusing, but I hope you understand what I'm trying to get at.
Thank you in advance for all of your comments and corrections.
Dear Family and Friends:
I did it! I am completely overjoyed to announce my graduation from "Unnamed" High School. Now I'm moving onward and upward, but I realize I couldn't have done it without all of you. I want to thank each of you for your love, support and patience these past 12 years. I know it was not easy, but I hope you know how much I appreciated it. It's because of you that I have come this far.
Also, I would like to inform you that I was accepted into Oakland University's Honors College Program and am really looking forward to attending in the fall. I'm planning my classes around a bachelor's degree in communications. This is a liberal arts major designed to engage students in creating a voice for influencing our social world. My ultimate goal however is to earn a master's degree of library and information science from Wayne State University. I hope to use my education to the maximum capacity, and continue to benefit from all that I have been, and will be taught.
My love of learning has motivated me to peruse a career in either a library, due to the infinite amount of resources to answer any question; or a museum, which has thousands of years worth of knowledge in one building. One day, I wish to inspire someone to dream big, think for themselves and become a lifelong learner-just like I have been encouraged by each of you.
Special thanks to everyone who has congratulated my success or contributed in my benefit. I know it's difficult to make ends meet sometimes -especially in today's economy. I am so grateful for the help provided in funding for books and supplies I will need in the years ahead.
Thank you again for influencing me to be the person I am today. I will never forget your help!
Best wishes to you all,
