Dear Outstanding Young Citizen,
We are writing with the unfortunate news that the 2020 Outstanding Young Citizen program and banquet has been canceled. It is yet another consequence of the measures being taken during the coronavirus pandemic.
Please know that this decision was made after looking at every possible way to maintain this important event. But with the degree of uncertainty hanging over the school year, the distressed business climate and the extensive restrictions for reasons of public health, there was no way for the program and banquet to continue this year.
We appreciate how hard you have worked throughout your academic career. If it is of any consolation, recognize that your biography passed through a panel of judges -- and you were selected as a member of the 2020 Outstanding Young Citizen class with the designation of Elite Top 100. Please use that designation on resumes and documentation outlining your successes. That distinction belongs to you because you have earned it.
A bookkeeping note: If you sent a check for the event, there is no need to cancel it at the bank. All received checks are being shredded. If you have any questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The coronavirus pandemic has upended life across every sector of society. We join you in not just hoping for better days, but in taking action to rebound and rebuild – a task that Outstanding Young Citizens are called to accomplish.
Very truly yours,
Jennifer L. Bertetto
President and CEO, Trib Total Media
