Meet our November Match of the Month!

Cory and Eddie are starting their 3rd year together at Wilson Middle School. Cory is a 5-year mentor and is a chaplain at Licking Memorial Hospital.  Eddie is in the 8th grade this year and has come a long way since they first met at the beginning of 6th grade.  Eddie was having a rough time because his family had moved and his dad was ill.  It was a new town and a new school.  He was struggling socially and he was prone to having meltdowns.  Now he is like a different kid!  He is happier and more self-assured.  He is doing well academically and is on the Honor Roll.  He also has a lot more friends.  He has learned resilience and perseverance, according to the principal.  Eddie and Cory are great friends, and Eddie wishes that they could spend more time together. They are both quite competitive and enjoy playing games of all kinds.  They each have a wicked sense of humor so there is often lots of laughter involved in their meetings.
