I am incredibly proud of both our board and staff for making quality programming a priority for our local children,” said Ryan Scott, Executive Director of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southwestern Indiana. “Their hard work equates to more mentorship in our area and a concerted effort to defend the potential of ALL our kids!”
