Meet our June Match of the Month!
Meet our June Match of the Month- Big Sister Kali and Little Sister Parker! These two were matched this year at New Lexington Elementary. Kali attends New Lexington High School and Parker will be going in to the 2nd grade. Parker has been very shy when meeting others in the past and needed a consistent role model. She is the youngest of four siblings, so that extra positive and fun one-on-one attention is important for her. Kali approached the relationship with an open mind and a lot of patience, which has paid off! These two are now the best of friends. Parker’s face lights up when she sees Kali walk in the room to see her. Because of Kali’s persistence and consistency, Parker has shown great improvement in being able to make healthy friendships with others in the program.
