Mr. Crane,

I attended your lecture this afternoon at York College and I felt the need to thank you for coming to York College and sharing your wealth of knowledge.  I must admit that it was the greatest learning experience that I probably have ever had.  I feel as though you gave me the recipe for success and now it’s in my hands to simply bake the cake.  I feel much more relieved and less stressed about my future endeavors. Again, thank you very much for sharing your knowledge and experience.  This was the most vital information I have received to help benefit my future.  It was the absolute best educational experience I have ever received.

Thank You Very Much,

I attended your presentation at Penn State on November 12th.  Since then, I have read your book and have been filling out my SF-86 (slowly but surely).  I enjoyed your book and left a review on Amazon. During your presentation, you offered a free book to any of us that left a review for it.  I’ll take you up on that; having only read the kindle edition, I’d like a physical copy to reference as I continue to fill out my form.

Dear Mr. Kevin Crane,
I am currently a freshman at Penn State University and attended both your morning and evening presentation.  I am writing this to thank you for the very useful information about gaining a security clearance, as well as how to succeed in college.  The speeches were very motivational; so much so that I already began creating my college and career plan.  I also bought your book on Amazon, and am currently halfway through Chapter 5.  You have truly taught and inspired me to get a head start and take advantage of the resources I have.  I am working on building up my resume, and helping myself to become more professional.  Again, I appreciate you coming in to speak to the class, and have taken what you said to heart.
Thank you so much for your time,
Matthew Hampel
