Dear Albright Reporter, I just wanted to reach out to say I think you are doing a great job with the Albright Reporter. It's a quality publication.

I also enjoyed reading Barbara Marshall's "Lessons Learned" piece. Her second "Marshall Law" about typos rang true to me as a professional editor and proofreader now.

Barbara is an outstanding and professional lady. She helped guide me on my path as a communications professional. I truly appreciated her advice to go freelance for the Reading Eagle. That was such an important career first step for me and full of great growth experiences. I also really appreciate how she was kind and patient, even when I staged a protest my senior year and had the local TV station there.

I learned so much while at Albright in the classroom. But looking back, the out-of-the-classroom learning, Experience events, sharing, and friendships also shaped me into the adult I am today. I am so extremely grateful and hope to pay it forward. - Jennifer Schestok-Yasar '00

Dear Albright Reporter, I was so pleased to see the feature article on Terry Reilly in the recent Albright Reporter.

When Terry arrived on campus in the fall of 1975, I was returning for my senior year and wondering who this new guy was that would be teaching my senior seminar course. Well, with all due respect to the other accounting professors I had, I think I learned more in one year under Terry than I had the previous three. He not only was (is) a gifted teacher, he gave me direction on where I may want to go in my accounting career. In the spring of 1976, I accepted a job at a large, local CPA firm in Allentown. I am typing this email from the same building I entered on June 14, 1976, to begin that career.

I have said more than once that Terry "saved my life." That may be a bit overstated, but as a teacher and friend, Terry set me on a path that has shaped my life over these past 36+ years. It was wonderful to read that he has continued doing the same for so many others. Albright found a real treasure in Terry Reilly.
- Jim Anderson, CPA '76

Dear Albright Reporter, I was glad to see your article on Terry Reilly. He was one of my favorite professors.

I enjoyed his teaching so much, that I took "Intermediate Accounting"—even though I wasn't an accounting major. Need I say more? - Jay Yoder '81

Dear Albright Reporter, I wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed reading the profile of Paul Leinbach '43 in the winter 2012 issue. My father was a home builder in Exeter Township and a loyal customer of Leinbach's Hardware. I have many fond memories of visiting Leinbach's as a child with my dad and being fascinated by the many bins of nuts and screws, and especially those that held the beans and seeds that were destined to be planted in the local farms of the time. The inventory was vast and it occupied every nook and cranny of the store. Whatever one needed, Leinbach's had it, and one of the many knowledgeable family members or staff knew exactly where to find it. - Craig Rimby '77
