Dear All,

	I hope you're having a good summer. I received the following request
for a student mentor for a freshman who has a learning disability (see
below). Note that "applied science" is supposed to read "applied math".

Please contact me (or GleeAnn directly) if your interested.

	Best wishes,

	Greg Fasshauer

I am still looking for a student mentor who 
is an upper classman or a grad student in applied mathematics. Do 
either of you have any suggestions? The mentor would need to be 
available to work 3-5 hours per week and would be paid by my office. 
Please let me know what you think!
Thanks for your help!
