Meet our February Match of the Month!
Meet our February Match of the Month- Big Brother Bert and Little Brother Wyatt! They have been matched at John Clem Elementary in the Clem Reads program. They work together on Wyatt’s school work, they read and they talk about all sorts of things. Wyatt likes it when they read because Bert reads with funny accents. Bert likes to work with Wyatt on academics. He is encouraged to see how much Wyatt has improved. Bert described his Little as very polite and respectful. Bert said “Wyatt’s smart— he gets my jokes.” Wyatt’s response was a friendly eye roll and they both laughed. Bert has been volunteering with us for many years. He has participated in the Clem book group matches and is also on the BBBS board. Wyatt has been matched with Bert for 2 years. They have accomplished quite a lot together!
