Somebody at the Ringling loves me

I said in my previous post that I didn't have photos of me at the Ringling, but I do have some evidence.

At one point in the workshop I stressed the importance of sending thank-you notes and Phyllis Schaen, the Ringling director of Career Services, nearly jumped up out of her seat and gave me a standing ovation. She was so thrilled with this topic of my presentation that she went up to her office and brought me a stuffed bear with a T-shirt that reads "Somebody from the Ringling School of Art and Design Loves Me."


A thousand thank-yous to Cyndi Flanagan for bringing me to Sarasota!

    Alyson, I am one of the students from RSAD that came to your weekend workshop – and it was AMAZING!!! Thank you so much for sharing your wealth of information with us. Trust me, I am not just speaking for myself when I say there is more than one person at Ringling School of Art and Design that loves you! =) We wish you all the best, and can’t wait to see you again!
