"Dear Dr. Lewis,
I just wish to let you, faculty and staff at Parkside know that I matched in Neurosurgery at University of Oklahoma-Oklahoma city. This would not have been possible without the support and guidance that I received as an undergrad at University of WI-Parkside. My life has been molded by the mentors at Parkside and I just wanted to share my joy with everyone at Parkside. Please accept my humble thanks and also thank the faculty and staff at the University.
Thanks, Ahmed Cheema"
