Mentors are important! They reach out to kids who have plenty of talent and really big dreams, but might not always have someone to guide them. Mentoring is about building trusting relationships. It’s about providing a stable, comfortable and secure place where young people can find opportunities to grow.
Thank you to all of the mentors who continue to help those in need of someone to trust and someone to follow. Our community is grateful for your service. We honor with special distinction, Tony Sieberg, Brother/Sister Mentor of the Year 2020, Tami Anderson, School-Based Mentor of the Year 2020 and Les Koppendrayer, Community Mentor of the Year 2020. Congratulations on your work.
These caring adults have set an example for all of us. We can all make a difference. It doesn’t have to require a huge commitment; it doesn’t take much at all. It can be as simple as taking a kid to the zoo, shooting some hoops, going shopping, or just sitting around talking. There is so much good that can be done.
