Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Atlanta (BBBSMA) hosted a 2022 Graduation Celebration at Georgia State University on Saturday, June 4th, to honor 63 graduating senior Littles, their Bigs, and their families.
It was an incredibly moving and fun way to wrap up the school year, to give matches the chance to express what the program has meant to them, and to convey our gratitude for the hard work our Bigs and parents of these Littles have done to defend their potential.
Little Brother Alumnus Stephon Avery was the MC of the event, Little Sister Sydnee-Jordan led the invocation, Big Sister Heidi gave a special performance, and four matches were able to speak about their experiences with the BBBSMA program. A total of $30,000 in scholarships were gifted to 23 senior Littles thanks to our generous sponsors.
Special thanks to our sponsors:
- Platinum Sponsors UPS & Cox Enterprises
- Gold Sponsors Google & Fiserv
- Silver Sponsors State Farm & The Atlanta Braves Foundation
- Bronze Sponsors MONAT, CLA Foundation, Northside Hospital, PPG, and Georgia Natural Gas
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Atlanta’s one-to-one mentoring program works with volunteers, parents, and families to help create relationships that defend, inspire, and empower the potential that lives within every kid.
