Miss Valerie McGovern
I am pleased to congratulate you and all the students and staff that participated in the Oak International contest that we convoked at the start of this school year.
Our committee has reviewed the video you sent us, and we found that it gave strong witness to the unity at your school. It is wonderful to see how an academic community can come together with so much joy in a project that is quite complicated to pull off in a coordinated way. We are sure that it was not an easy task and that it took a lot of logistical work and many sacrifices.
For these reasons and considering the quality of the production, we have decided to recognize Overbrook Academy as the winner of the Lipdub contest.
In recognition, we will publish the video on our Oak International web page (www.oakinternational.org). I am sure that the video will give other girls and parents an attractive picture of the richness, variety, and internationality of the Overbrook Experience.
Now that the end of the school year is coming, I would like to congratulate all the students and staff of the academy and tell you that the video will be a great means of promotion for Overbrook, since our alumni are the best ambassadors for the academy. Many people see our students as a model to follow, and this is not only cause for pride and leadership, but also a call to be aware that their life can do much good for others who will follow in their footsteps.
With this video, the 2011-2012 generation has made its mark; and with your lives, you will make an indelible mark on the world.
I am sending you a special recognition and our most sincere congratulations. On behalf of the organizing committee,
