This quarter, we highlight volunteer, Stuart Melvin. We met Stuart through Big Brothers, Big Sisters as he currently volunteers as a Big. You may recall seeing him in our 2016 Campaign Video. When Brother-to-Brother Academy reached out to us looking for a volunteer to teach financial education and soft skills to the young men in the program, we immediately turned to Stuart as we know he would be a perfect fit. Since then he has been teaching Junior Achievement to them one Saturday a month. In addition to giving so much of his time to the youth in our community, he also owns his own successful business. We are so thankful for all of the time that Stuart has invested in our community to make it a better place for us all.
 

“I volunteer to teach and mentor young boys because I want them to become successful men. Modeling is the best teacher because kids can see first-hand how to interact with people and react to life’s challenges and uncertainties. Hopefully, my legacy to the world will be a group of boys who grow up to be responsible, ethical, and generous hard-working family men. I trust that these men will pass these teachings on to future generations so that the spirit of my caring lives on through them. I have worked with Big Brothers Big Sisters for the past 4 years. Last year, I started mentoring through the Brother-to-Brother academy as well as Junior Achievement of Kentuckiana. This past summer we worked with Habitat for Humanity in Louisville.  I also spend a lot of volunteer time at St. Stephen Church of Hardin County of which I am a member. I encourage everyone to get involved in the lives of kids in our community as they need us now more than ever.”-- Stuart Melvin
