‘Dear Mom and Dad’ is an annual project which was developed to provide an opportunity and an avenue for graduating seniors to express sentiments to parents/family. These messages are sometimes forgotten or left unsaid. Even for parents who feel they are honored regularly, it’s touching to read the public expressions of love for A-B’s parents!
Each year, seniors are invited to submit a brief entry to ‘Dear Mom &Dad,’ to honor parents/family of graduating seniors. Seniors can share a message of gratitude, appreciation, humor, etc., as related to their parents’ support, guidance and encouragement. The message should be 100 words or less and contain appropriate language. In addition, the messages will be displayed for all parents/family to enjoy.
Submissions must be received by 5:00 p.m., Friday, May 3, 2013.
Please send your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org

My dear mother, father, and fiancé: It took me a bit longer than most, but I finally made it! I couldn’t have done it without you. Your love and support throughout my college career kept me going. Without you, I may have given up long ago, but you taught me to believe in myself and see the wonderful future ahead of me. Words cannot express just how thankful I am to have you in my life, nor how much I love you. You are the fuel that keeps the fire in me burning. May the odds be ever in our favor!
