|Congratulations to our December Big of the Month, Bonni Baron! Bonni was matched with her Little Sister Marshea in February 2015. Since then the match has participated in many activities. Both Bonni and Marshea enjoy reading, they have been able to exchange books and watch and discuss movies that were based on books. The match has also enjoyed skating together, going to the park, dinner outings and school shopping. When Bonni learned Marshea enjoys cooking and has plans to become a chef, Bonni sign the match up for a cooking class at the Art Institute in Henderson. The surprise for Marshea was, the cooking class was an audition for her to be accepted in a program designed to help high school students earn college credits towards a culinary arts degree. Marshea was accepted in to the program and has been taking classes every Saturday this school year. Bonni helped Marshea complete the enrollment application and apply for financial aid for school. In June, Marshea will graduate high school and plans to continue attending the Art Institute. Marshea says she gives credit to her Big Sister for introducing her to the program and helping her achieve her goal of attending college to become a chef.|
