Not Chosen for All-USA Team

I received confirmation this afternoon that I was not chosen for the next round of competition in regards to my scholarship. I still retain all the accolades and rewards I have earned so far but will not be sent to Washington D.C. for further contention.

Below is a copy of the letter sent to me via email:

Dear Kristi,

Thank you for participating in the 2008 All-USA Academic Team competition. Your commitment to academic excellence and community service that earned you this nomination is commendable. Unfortunately, due to the limited number of positions on the All-USA Academic Team, your nomination was not selected. Nearly 1,600 nominations were received this year, each of which represented the top 99th percentile of their sponsoring two-year institution. For your participation in the 2008 All-USA Academic Team competition, we are pleased to present you with a certificate of recognition. This certificate will be mailed directly to your college president for his or her signature in April. We appreciate you and your college submitting a nomination for the 2008 All-USA Academic Team. Through your participation, you have become part of the movement to showcase the outstanding students enrolled in our two-year colleges. We wish you the very best with your future academic endeavors.
