Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) is pleased to recognize Big Sister Gloria Green as our volunteer of the month. Gloria is a Program Governance Administrator at American Family Insurance and has been matched with her Little Sister Rakayah since March 2005. Gloria and Rakayah have a special bond. They spend their time together hanging out at the mall, having lunch and planning for the future. Gloria helps her Little Sister dream big and plan ahead for college. Gloria encourages Rakayah to hard work hard in school and secure employment over the summer months. They also enjoy volunteering at BBBS events such as Bowl for Kids’ Sake and our Annual Gala.
When Rakayah was asked “How would you describe your Big Sister to someone who doesn’t know her?” she replied, “She is nice, open, caring and honest with me.” Rakayah also states, since she’s been matched to Gloria, she has learned the value of education and to look people in the eyes when speaking with them. We congratulate Gloria and Rakayah for their dedication to one another for the past 10 years!
