Congratulations, Silver! Can't wait for all the pieces to settle into place so you can spill the details.

The contest I critique for just got a thank you note from Nicholls Fellow Dion Cook, regarding the notes our readers provide and how it helped him win the 'Wood's most notable and prestigious contest. This validation is off the scale, and no I didn't provide the notes, but I'm thrilled for the teammates who did.

Thank you, Roly! And good luck - hitting send can be a trying task (but it's nothing compared to meetings and cold calls). Doing it is 99 percent of the battle.
