Congratulations to our October Site-Based Big of the Month, Frank Jetton!
What does being a Big mean to you?
"Being a Big reminds me of those experiences growing up where I followed a crowd and later realized I made a poor decision. Sharing that I made bad choices with Isaiah shows I’m human. And through honesty, by owning up to mistakes, we can become better - more responsible people. I hope to demonstrate how being an independent thinker who questions everything is how I expect to earn respect from others."
What surprised you most about being a Big to your Little?
"I forgot how fun it is playing strategy games like Connect 4, Battleship and Monopoly. Isaiah impressed me by beating me numerous times in tic-tac-toe and Connect 4."
What are you most proud of in your match?
"He’s a likable fellow who has a big heart. Isaiah’s teachers and peers respected him @ Reid Park. He played OZ in the school play. He wants to do great things. We discuss how to improve smart phones. One day he will change the world for the better."
What is your favorite part about being a Big?
"I hope we will both look back someday and remember the trick basketball shots in the gym and making homemade Mother’s Day cards. I really enjoy the times the two of us brainstorm and come up with ideas for making the world a better place. I hope our experience together inspires Isaiah to become a mentor to other kids someday."
Thank you for being a wonderful mentor Frank!
