To Whom It May Concern

I am writing this letter for Jeff Luhn regarding his employment with the Santa Cruz County Regional Occupational Program (ROP). I met Jeff when attending a digital photography course he taught at Cabrillo College, our local community college. I attended the class for personal interest and after talking with him further, took additional courses he taught there. After learning of his background, I asked him to teach digital photography in the high school program I help direct.

Jeff taught three classes at Watsonville High School the first year with our program. Jeff received excellent observation reports from our teacher mentor and site staff and it was apparent right away he was a strong addition to our program. His background in photography spans over 40 years and he is able to transfer that knowledge to students in the high school and community college setting.

As the assistant director we are always searching for experts in their field and Jeff is an expert in the Arts, Media & Entertainment Industry Sector.

The course he teaches is a UC/CSU a-g college prep approved course. Jeff brought his years of industry experience to the classroom, which added much more to the college prep course. We were looking for other opportunities for him when he decided to relocate. We are sorry to see Jeff leave, but understand personal and family reasons are important too.

Please let Mark Hodges or I know if we can be of further assistance.

Thank you

Jim Howes

Santa Cruz Regional Occupational Program
