"Dear Mr. Nagel, I wanted to thank for your time and willingness to serve as mentor for our recent "speed mentoring" event. It's a remarkable event that affords students the opportunities to speak with a range of individuals - FBI agents, state and local police, those who work in probation and parole, researchers, social workers, law students, as well as representatives from graduate programs and law schools - that are relevant for their future goals. The speed mentoring events are among the most popular and successful outreach programs we have, in large part because of your contributions. I understand you have a number of other obligations and I am deeply appreciative of you taking time from your evenings to support our students."
