Last Saturday, a group of about 35 Bigs, Littles and parents enjoyed a day of hiking at Amicalola Falls State Park with our partner Keeping It Wild.

TechBridge's new series, #storiesofimpact, isn't one to miss. here's one the team has been so excited to share, compliments of the incredible work Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Atlanta does every single day. "...Austin’s interest in Michael’s wellbeing didn’t end when he went off to business school. Michael was really upset when Austin moved away. He got in trouble at school and even flunked two classes during his freshman year. Upon hearing that bit of bad news, Austin immediately flew back to Atlanta and scheduled meeting with Michael’s teachers so they could come up with a plan to help Michael succeed. Michael describes this event as a real turning point in his relationship with Austin. He knew he didn’t want to let his mentor down. To show Michael what life could be like if he applied himself in school, Austin flew Michael to Boston and let him sit in on some of his business school classes. That did the trick. Michael graduated from high school, attended Colgate for his undergrad and received an MBA from Harvard Business School. Austin also graduated from Harvard. The dean was so impressed with Austin’s ability to make a difference in Michael’s life that he read Michael’s life essay to the incoming class during orientation."

TechBridge kicked off their Stories of Impact series with a story featuring our very own Michael Gandy. He is one of our former Littles who surmounted early challenges of his life in a huge way, went on to become a success and decided to pay it forward.
