Testimonial

I am writing this letter of recommendation for Majed Kilani, who I coached for three years whilst he represented the University of Tulsa’s men’s tennis team. In my experience with Majed, he has been a hard worker on and off the court during his time at Tulsa. He shows up with a good attitude every day, is well regarded by his peers and throws himself head on at challenges in his path. He has learned and demonstrated the values of persistence, resolve and discipline, traits that are central to success in all walks of life.

Testimonial

I am writing to recommend Majed Kilani, one of the members of the Men’s Tennis Team at The University of Tulsa. Throughout his career here not only has he shown technical superiority, but incredible leadership ability as well. As a freshman, he showed natural leadership potential with his confident demeanor yet hard work ethic. These qualities flourished throughout his career at TU. He ended his career just outside the top ten singles wins for men and as the captain of our team. He consistently showed dedication to his individual growth as well as the growth of the team. He is the ultimate team player and remained coachable no matter how much success he saw. Although his leadership abilities were evident during his wins, they emerged even more through his losses. Tennis is an incredibly competitive sport. Although Majed saw lots of success, as a coach, it was admirable how he continued to support his team even through his losses. He showed grace and eloquence and demonstrated to his teammates how they need to carry themselves no matter what the outcome is. These losses never deterred him from continuing on, but rather, inspired him to improve for the sake of his team.

Testimonial

To Whom It My Concern: I am writing this letter to recommend that Mr. Majed Kilani be given the privilege and opportunity to serve as a coach/instructor within your organization. I have known Majed since his matriculation at The University of Tulsa (TU) as a Men's Tennis Student -Athlete; therefore, as the Vice President & Director of Athletics at TU I feel extremely qualified to speak on his behalf. Majed is an outstanding young man in many respects. In this "me-first" society, it is quiet refreshing to be around this totally selfless young man. The balancing of academics, career development and other endeavors is indeed a difficult task that Majed seems to have mastered. Some of his accomplishments as a TUStudent-Athlete include: - Intercollegiate Tennis Association Scholar-Athlete in 2016 - American Athletic Conference Men's Tennis Freshman of the year in 2017 - American Athletic Conference Men's Tennis Player of the week in October and January 2017 - Men's Tennis All-Conference Team in 2017 - American Athletic Conference Men's Tennis Player of the Month in 2018 - Played the number 1 position during 2018 and 2019 seasons - Highest ITA ranking of 23 in doubles and 39 in singles - Tennis coach during summer camps at Vince Westbrook Tennis Academy in The University of Tulsa. Please note that Majed has also done well in the classroom and has graduated in three and a half years from our academically rigorous institution. Perhaps the strongest statement I can make about Majed is that I would not hesitate to work hand in hand with him on any educational or job-related activity. He is not only hard-working and intelligent, but determined and upwardly-mobile as well. I wrote this letter on Majed's behalf because I beleive in him. I hope you will give him an opportunity to make believers of you as well. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or if I can be of further assistance. I can be reached at 918-606-5788 and/or via email derrick-gragg@utulsa.edu. Positively,

Derrick L. Gragg, Ed.D. -Vice President & Director of Athletics - The University Of Tulsa
