To Whom It May Concern:

I am writing this letter on behalf of Alaya Tyson. I have had the pleasure of knowing Alaya for almost
two years, having served as her Biotechnology teacher at El Capitan High School. Alaya is a dedicated
student and well rounded individual. She has managed a full classload as well as extracurricular
activities, with over 200 hours of community service, all while maintaining a healthy GPA.

Alaya is respectful, hardworking, and friendly. She has persevered and succeeded in a two year
college level, lab science class. Biotechnology articulates with Merced Junior College, for which she
will be receiving 6 units of college credit. As a biotechnology student she has gained training in safety,
lab skills, and has mastered the use of various lab equipment which can be applied to various fields.
Beyond lab skills she has shown great maturity and growth. I have observed Alaya to be a mature,
methodical, and reliable individual. She works well both on her own and collaboratively. I am
confident that she will thrive in any academic program she pursues.

Alaya plans on pursuing a degree in nutrition. I believe her work ethic and persistence will serve as a
great tool for her and help her succeed. She has the necessary skills to be a strong, viable citizen and
adult. Her desire to earn a college degree and determination will result in her future success. If you
have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
