(WHAS11) There are certain people in life that when you meet them, you know right away they will be stars of the future.
I was lucky enough to come across one of those people. He’s only in the second grade and even more amazing to me, he’s been on the Big Brothers waiting list for more than a year and is looking for a match.
He is 8-years-old, and I have to tell you that this young man is probably the most polite, well-spoken second grader I’ve ever come across. His mom, like me, is puzzled as to why he’s been on the Big Brothers waiting list for nearly one year.
VJ Anthony was born on Oaks Day, 2003, and he’s got every bit of the thoroughbred spirit in him. His mom says any potential Big Brother will have a blast and I have to agree.
I also found out he is fun to tease and has got a great sense of humor; who couldn’t spend a few hours a month with that great personality and million dollar smile?
Warm weather is here, it’s time to fill up your time for the summer and the waiting list for Kentuckiana’s Big Brothers Big Sisters organization is long; mostly young boys.
You can make a huge difference in a young person’s life. Give Big Brothers Big Sisters a call at 1-877-588-2300. They make it easy for you to get started.
