2017 Graduation Marks Milestones
2017 marks a particularly special year for us. Not only are we celebrating 50 years, but also the largest graduating class in our history. Thanks to the longtime support of the Alvin H. Baum Family Fund, Ms. Carlette C. McMullan and Mr. John Gibbons, and James & Madeleine McMullen, we were able to provide scholarships to help prepare our graduates for this next chapter.
We are also grateful to our event sponsors, Cale America and Allstate, for continuing to enable us to put on such a meaningful celebration for our graduates, their Bigs, families – and the entire BBBSMC family.
The night was filled with special moments, but one stuck out amongst the rest: hearing the journey of a match who had spent 10 years together. When Nate and Kristy first met their Little, Jamie, he was only eight years old. Now Jamie plays a much larger role in the family, a big brother to Nate and Kristy’s two daughters, who don’t know a life without him. While Jamie has graduated from high school and the program, their journey together is far from over and we can’t wait to see where he, and the rest of the Littles, go next.
