Meet our October Match of the Month!

Third year matches Breanna (Little) and Kaitlyn (Big), a Denison senior, have been matched since October 2016 at Cherry Valley Elementary School. Breanna began as a third grader and she is now starting fifth grade. Breanna and Kaitlyn enjoy reading together, talking and working on crafts.  Kaitlyn went abroad for a semester to France, she wrote to Breanna and sent her pictures to keep her informed.  When Breanna was asked why she likes being matched with Kaitlyn, she smiled and said she likes having Kaitlyn all to herself on lunch buddy days to talk with and do fun things together.  Breanna always has a huge smile on her face each week when Kaitlyn walks into the cafeteria. We are excited to see what they can accomplish in the year ahead.
