Bigs of the year

These Bigs have done a great job of being a consistent, positive role model for their Little, and often support the agency by helping recruit volunteers or raise funds at events.

Big Brother of the year

John with Little Jayce

John Kauffman has been matched in a Community-Based match with Little Brother Jayce since September 2016. For the most part, they have maintained weekly outings. They love to do outdoor activities together including: hunting, fishing, and camping together. John has even taken Jayce to several out-of-town camping trips with his family. They also enjoy attending church services together and John attends almost all of Jayce’s sporting events. John has taken a lot of time to not only build a relationship with Jayce, but also to teach him a lot of skills and provide him with new experiences such as learning to golf, preparing fish, and starting a fire.

Big Sister of the year

Nancy with Little Cody

Nancy Denlinger has been matched in a Community-Based match with Little Brother Cody since June 2012! Throughout the 8 years of being a BBBS match, they’ve maintained weekly outings! They enjoy movies, running errands together, being outside, and playing games together. During the summer, they spend quite a bit of time out on the lake. Every summer the two volunteer at the Kiwanis booth at the 4-H County Fair. We are so grateful for her dedication and commitment to BBBS program!

Big Family/Couple of the year

Glenn & Christine Stutzman with Little David

Glenn and Christine have been in a Community-Based match with Little Brother David since July 2015. They enjoy hanging out and building things. Glenn & David helped their neighbor build a rock climbing wall! David has been given really cool opportunities throughout his match that he would not have had otherwise. David is a senior this year and we are sad to see their match close, but are excited to see David graduate and the great things he will do in the future! We are so thankful for Glenn & Christine’s years of commitment to the BBBS program.
