Match: Little Sister Alexis and Big Sister Haylie Runge
Match Date: July 31st, 2012
High School: Ben Davis University High School
Little Sister Alexis and Big Sister Haylie Runge have been matched together for 9 years. Alexis will be graduating from Ben Davis University High School in the Spring. Come this Fall, Alexis will be attending Goshen College to further her education!
When reflecting on their time together in the program and how Little Sister Alexis has grown over the past 9 years Haylie shared, “Alexis was very shy when we first met. While she is still quiet, I love that she can open up to me about her friends, school, etc. I also really love her excitement about the future!”
Alexis and Haylie have done a lot together over the years, but one memory that stands out for both of them was attending a Taylor Swift concert together! They are both huge Taylor Swift fans and loved belting out every song together at the concert. Another special memory they have together was when they went to see Hamilton. In addition to these special memories, Haylie and Alexis have enjoyed many of the BBBSCI agency sponsored match events and going out for meals together.
Haylie has one message that she would like to leave for Alexis, “Alexis can truly do anything that she sets her mind to!” The BBBSCI family and Haylie will be rooting for Alexis as she heads into this next chapter of her life at Goshen College.
Good luck, Alexis!
