“We would like to thank you for all of your time and dedication to the REAP program. You gave our sons Ron and Nick a life changing opportunity to participate in real university research as incoming high school seniors.  They learned alot during their experience over the summer, interacting with their mentors, and the wider university community, and becoming more prepared for their future as college students.  Nick and Ron discovered what research is all about, and now they are passionate to continue.    As parents, we believe that the exposure made possible by the REAP program will make a difference in their lives.  Thank you for making it possible!”   —Ron and Daniela Ostezan
