**I just wanted to send a message to thank you for the very generous scholarship you gave to Taylor. Of course, she will send you a proper thank you as well! Four springs ago I made a decision to take my daughter out of a very negative environment, she fell in love with your gym within 10 minutes of being there. Thank you for not only coaching her in cheer but the important life lessons she has learned as well.You have influenced the very strong, independent young eighteen year old girl you see today. People say it is a family atmosphere at your gym, they are not just saying that, it really has been for Taylor.

**I wanted to send an email to say how impressed I am with your organization. We just started attending a month ago and Elite is incredibly well organized and professional. I used to own my own center for the arts including cheerleading, dance, music etc and I understand how difficult it is to communicate all the necessary information, hold meetings, focus groups, organize competitions, etc and your organization does it incredibly well.
Thank you for the constant communication and all the updates.
**Graduation seemed like a perfect time to tell you how much the entire Elite family has meant to both Veronica and me over the years. She came to Elite as a painfully shy 5/6 year old. So introverted that she wouldn't even look at people when they'd talk to her. Then she found her passion and her family away from home, and she became a new person. The motivation, support, and encouragement she received from every coach at Elite gave her confidence in herself and her abilities not only in the gym, but in life. Everything you teach your athletes - motivation, determination, confidence, sportsmanship, teamwork, goal setting, perseverance - it all carries over into every aspect of life. She's grown into a strong, self-confident, outgoing young woman- a complete change from the little girl who first came to Elite 12 years ago. You have each had such a tremendous impact on her life, and have truly had a huge role to play in the person she has become. And when an injury caused her to stop doing what she loved, you stuck by her and always made her feel welcome and part of the family. The lessons she learned at Elite, the confidence that grew in her, the friends we both made, and the years worth of fun memories will never be forgotten and I am grateful to all of you for being her home away from home for so long. You are a class act organization, focused on teaching your athletes so much more than cheer, and we will now be part of your extended family, cheering you on as you continue to grow and teach the next generation of athletes. You don't know how much of a positive impact you truly have in the lives of your athletes, and I thought you should know, because I am forever grateful.
