This letter serves as a strong recommendation for Anson Wartley as a professional Guidance Counselor. During his career in our district, Mr. Wartley had a reputation for establishing strong relationships with students and their parents. Our district has experienced serious budget cuts and, regrettably, we had to let Mr. Wartley go. Our loss should be your gain.
Mr. Wartley was extremely active in all aspects of our school and was very popular with the students. He often served as the faculty adviser to student planning organizations and was also asked to be the impartial monitor of all student elections. He also helped to organize charitable activities that the students found very enjoyable.
As for his guidance counselor skills, Mr. Wartley still gets letters of thanks from former students who appreciate the direction he pointed them in. His list of successful students is extremely long and includes at least three current political leaders in our community. Mr. Wartley became an asset to our school and our community.
It was painful for us to have to release Mr. Wartley, but we were confident that he would land on his feet. If you need more information, please contact me personally by calling me at 555-423-5565 or through email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
