Hello Mark,

Thank you for advocating for this change. However, if you are claiming that 
the college scholarship program is a subset within the scholarship 
committee, I would suggest adding the word "sub-committee" at the end of 
your sentence. I believe this statement better reflects what actually took 
place during the meeting, so thank you for suggesting it.

Warm regards,
Elizabeth
