Match: Little Brother Jaden and Big Brother John Murphy
Match Date: May 4, 2015
High School: Arsenal Technical High School
Little Brother Jaden and Big Brother John Murphy have been matched together for 5 years. Jaden has been accepted to Ivy Tech and plans to attend in the fall while living at home and working part time. He plans to study either automotive or IT, he has not quite decided yet. Jaden is super appreciative of everything that the Big Brothers Big Sisters program has done for him and says his Big Brother John has always been there for him and it has been nice to have someone he can always count on.
Mentoring Relationship Specialist, Leah Edge, shared that she is easily able to see the impact that Big Brother John has had on Little Brother Jaden. She shared that Little Brother Jaden has really grown a lot and is getting ready to attend Ivy Tech and major in business at Ivy Tech–a decision likely influenced by Big Brother John who is a business owner himself. Leah mentioned that even as Big Brother John’s personal family has grown, he always talks about Little Brother Jaden as part of his family. Little Brother Jaden has shared that John has always been there for him and he loves him like a real brother. They have both helped each other through life’s ups and downs and will likely stick by each other for years to come, just like brothers do.
Good luck with everything, Jaden!
