NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- Not many students write to the president of the United States, and even fewer hear back from him. New Rochelle High School senior Alyssa Purrier is delighted to be in both groups.

It was a regular October day in Carol Donnelly's computer apps class for grades 10 through 12, and students were learning how to use the Microsoft Office Suite and write a business letter.

Some students wanted to write to a real person. Donnelly thought it was a good idea that would make them excited about the class. She suggested writing to a famous person.
