In my careers as both a photo boss and a college prof, I’ve had the pleasure of writing letters of recommendation for lots of different folks. Over the past year, a couple of the “LORs” I’ve tapped out have been better than the standard, run-of-the-mill letters. It makes me pleased as punch to get requests from students I haven’t seen in more than a year. “Why not share them,” I thought to myself. So first up is Cameron Rudolph who upon receiving my note responded, “This is the best letter of rec. that I have ever read. I will send this to a potential employer even if they don’t ask for one. The bad thing is, this is written in such a way that makes (them) want to hire you, not me.”

Kristin Skaggs was in two of my classes. Part fashionista, part super student, I got it into my head that maybe she was working for some secretive organization designed to root out evil, set the bar high for other students, and look fabulous while doing so. She told the class once that she hasn’t worn the same outfit twice since middle school. Yeah, she’s a spy all right.
