Congratulations to our June Community-Based Big of the Month, Kevin Lilly!
What impact has the Big had on your child’s life?
"My son has been truly blessed by his relationship with his mentor. Kevin Lilly has remained consistent and thorough regarding building a relationship with my son and mentoring him. I feel like he is literally family and I trust his input with my son and involvement.
His efforts to mentor my son are heartfelt, sincere and consistent from day one. My son’s grades have improved. His temperament, his understanding of what is expected of him in school and as a growing young man have been impacted.
Kevin Lilly has been a mentor for my son for the past 4.5 years just about. It has been a match made in heaven."
What are some of the best activities the match has done together?
"They have marched with the Alphas in the MLK parade, love going to breakfast, studying together at the library, and focusing on sports and fitness which they are both passionate about. Kevin attended his Little’s basketball games and cheered him on. He was also there to support him at his Littles middle school graduation."
Does the match work on goals together?
"Yes, they have goals that they work towards. Kevin understands the impact of doing well in school and how it will impact the future. They have lunch or breakfast and talk about how he’s doing weekly.They go to the library and study as well."
What's the Littles favorite thing about the Big?
"My favorite thing about him is that he is always there for me and he likes sports as much as I do."
Thank you for being a wonderful mentor Kevin!
