Letter Recommending Mr. James Nance, Sculptor
Selection Committee Members,
most pleased to recommend your selection of sculptor, Mr. James Nance. Mr.
Nance has, in every regard, surpassed the performance of all other sculptors
with whom Iíve worked throughout the past three years.
research is extraordinary. His artistic expressions are exceptional. Equally
important, he understands the critical aspects of partnering and personal
accountability. Mr. Nance communicates openly throughout the life of the
project. He responds immediately to questions and change proposals. He applies
his engineering background to anticipate and resolve potential problems before
they arise; protecting not just his artwork but the costs and timeline of the
entire project. His respect for military values and his commitment to the
warrior ethic have been invaluable to establishing the heritage of our United
States Air Force Academy and the contributions of our graduates.
James Nance is a man driven by talent and integrity. I believe his performance
will surpass your expectations and I welcome calls to discuss his extraordinary
contributions to our needs.
