We would like to give special recognition to one of our volunteers, Bill Bingham. Bill has been a "Big" with Big Brothers Big Sisters since 1991 and has positively effected the lives of several children in our community, including Austin.
Bill and Austin were matched in 2009. Bill believed that Austin really needed someone who could realate to him since he lived in a household of women. Austin, who recently graduated high school, shared that his time with Bill was "for the guys". Over the years, Bill and Austin would usually meet on Tuesdays and liked to shoot pool at the bolwing alley. Bill tried to be a good listener and offer advice when asked. He also shared that he offered encouragement for Austin to do well in school and to look toward the future. Bill also stated that he was very proud when Austin graduated high school.
