You could do it the way you suggest, but a better solution is to use a StringBuffer.

StringBuffer message = new StringBuffer("Thank you for ...");
message.append(rs.getString("skill"));
message.append(".  blah...");

The actual result is then accessed with:

message.toString().

Using string concatentation (message += ...) creates lots of unnecessary String objects.

If you need to add things to other locations in the StringBuffer, you can provide the index from which to start, eg following on from the above example:

message.insert(0, "Inserted.  ");

System.out.println(message.toString());

would give:

Inserted.  Thank you for ...Teacher. blah...
