The Graduation Celebration is our favorite event of the year. It gives us the chance to celebrate the accomplishments of our Little Brothers and Little Sisters – while also honoring the invaluable guidance from Bigs, Parents, & Family that helped ignite the fire of their potential.
It’s also an occasion to reflect on just how far we’ve come together. Seeing our BBBSMA community gather to commemorate the tremendous positive impact that a mentorship has on both the Big and the Little is an important reminder of the power of our mission.
Consider the amazing results we see, year after year. Of the Class of 2019 high school seniors in our program, 95% graduated on time, and 97% report plans to pursue post-secondary education or enter the military.
While the Grad Celebration signals the end of a Match’s time in the Big Brothers Big Sisters Program, it’s plain to see that the relationships cultivated here will continue to thrive for years to come. Surely, our Grads will take the spirit of our mission along with them as they enter into their next chapters.
We greatly appreciate our partners at WellCare Community Foundation for sponsoring our Graduation Celebration and providing two $1500 scholarships for some very deserving graduating Littles – Robert Brunet & Dominque Smith.
