Match: Little Brother Hardin and Big Couple Kenneth & Sheila Dollaske
Match Date: May 28th, 2015
High School: Pike High School
Little Brother Hardin and Big Couple Kenneth & Sheila Dollaske have been matched together for 6 years. Hardin is looking forward to graduating from high school this Spring and plans to attend Ivy Tech. Hardin, Kenneth, and Sheila are going to miss being a part of our program!
Despite the challenges that were presented this past year, these three managed to continue seeing each other once a month as it was safe to do so throughout this past year. During a year of isolation and uncertainty, Ken & Sheila’s commitment to their Little Brother was more meaningful than ever before. One special moment for this match during this last year was when they all went out to eat breakfast together and were looking at old photos of when they were matched with Hardin and discussed how much he has grown into the young man he is now.
Over the years, this match has enjoyed going out to eat and just having conversation, watching sporting events, going shopping, and attending BBBSCI match activities. In addition to these fun activities, Ken and Sheila have worked hard to help Hardin understand the importance of obtaining his education by staying focused and working hard in school. They also worked hard to expose Hardin to new experiences that helped him grow into a well rounded young man.
We are going to miss having these three in our program, but we can’t wait to see all that Hardin will accomplish! Good luck in this next chapter of your life, Hardin!
