Quote from teacher: “There is no doubt that Michael is a man of high caliber,” said Ray Maj, counselor. “Michael is always intimately immersed in the subject material of his courses and exhibits the ability to resonate with course material. His love for reading is directly related to his level of success. He takes each word to heart and unveils every imaginable thinking possibility related to the topic. He is a scholar and philosopher in the making. His curiosity and intuition will serve him well in the future.”
