Letter Recommending Mr. James Nance, Sculptor

Selection Committee Members,

I am 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 I’ve worked throughout the past three years.

His 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.
