A Message From Our Executive Director
Rebrand, Rebuild and Renew! We are undergoing a make-over here at Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Mid-South.

Rebrand, Rebuild and Renew is our agency’s rallying cry that will help shape my vision for the new and improved BBBSMS. It speaks to and aligns with our strategic efforts of marketing, fundraising and partnership building to serve more children.  By strengthening these area of growth, we hope to continue to enrich the lives of children through professionally supported, one-to-one mentoring relationships.

As we approach the agency’s semi-centennial, we are eager to showcase this energetic and meaningful platform that will help propel these efforts. Focusing on rebranding, rebuilding and renewing our agency will allow us to intersect with our nonprofit partners, financial partners and most importantly-the families we serve. The goal is to heighten our recognition and make our community as a whole, more aware of our life-changing results. ~ Susan A.George
