To whom it may concern,
Please accept my dearest apology for my mistake in regards to the tagging of the big
Oak tree located in the Little Three courtyard on September 4, 2013.
It was not my intention to cause any damage or inconvenience. The situation
resulted from me trying to advertise the program that I was putting on at that time.
While this is by no means an excuse for my actions, knowing the severity of what I
have done will help me guard against future mistakes.
If there is any good that came out of this unfortunate situation, it is that I have
grown and learned alternative approaches to these situations. Also I am able to act
as an advocate against the destruction of trees around campus.
Again, I am very sorry for what I have done. If you would like to continue this
conversation, please feel free to email me at sydney.a.bowden@wmich.edu. I look
forward to hearing from you soon.
All the best,
Sydney Bowden
