Big Sister Jenny Neer works in Syracuse and learned about our agency from BBBS of Northeast Indiana when they did a Lunch n’ Learn at her job. She became a Big at an elementary in Syracuse in fall of 2017 to Little Sister Trinity. Prior to meeting her, the Enrollment Specialist shared some information about her new Little Sister. Unfortunately, she had lost her mother in a car accident earlier that year. Jenny had also lost her mother at a young age. During the 2017-2018 school year, they met weekly for lunch but then Jenny was told the match would need to close because the family was moving outside of their service area. She was disappointed and asked where they were moving; it turned out to be Elkhart County! Though Jenny works in Kosciusko County, she lives in Elkhart County so she immediately requested that their match transition to Community-Based. Trinity loves spending time with Jenny and her family!
Jenny is also a Big Sister to Little Sister Rowan through our Site-Based program. After her match with Trinity transitioned to Community-Based, she still wanted to be a Big at the school near her job. She has been matched with Rowan since 10/2/18 and they meet weekly during lunch. We are thankful for Jenny’s time and dedication to both Trinity and Rowan.
