I want to congratulate Austin Czechowski on his Jan. 5 and 6, 2013, “Teen Talk” column. It was great advice, and shows his maturity as a high school student, when you can make yourself try harder and see the success that it will produce. His column should be mandatory reading for all students and teachers.
I too, made the effort to force myself to try harder, and achieved much better grades, but it wasn’t until after flunking out of an SUNY ag and tech college. When I tried again with harder work, I got much better grades. Success begets success.
I wish him continued success in his education and work endeavors, and I am sure he will find it. Thanks again for a great column.
