"It is my pleasure to write a recommendation for Donna Harris. She’s a distinguished individual … I am constantly impressed with her level of intelligence, diligence and honesty. She is amazing in every aspect and I can say that respectfully, she's my mentor. I came to know Donna the Summer of 2002 as an intern at WSET-TV in Lynchburg, Va. I've modeled my Broadcasting career after hers. I can say with confidence I wouldn’t be where I am today, if it wasn’t for her pushing me. From her I’ve learned how to respect the story and the person telling it regardless of my own personal conviction. That alone has made me a better person in every avenue of my life. While most in the news industry replicate stories, Donna is able to bring the story to life with a creative spin that appeal to the viewer. She is able to work collectively with her colleagues and in doing so she has established many respectable relationships in many broadcast markets while on her way. Her meticulous manner and efficiencies in research and investigations are outstanding. Moreover, Donna Harris is a promising individual that is confident and assertive. I believe in her ability to carry out any objective set before her. Therefore, I strong recommend her, without reservation and would appreciate your favorable consideration. "
