Match: Little – Gordon Big – Joe Warner
Match Date: May 12, 2020
Little’s High School: Indiana School for the Blind
Little Brother Gordon and Big Brother Joe Warner have been matched together for 3 years. Gordon will be graduating from Indiana School for the Blind in May 2023. In the future Gordon wants to attend vocational school.
During their time in the BBBSCI (Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Indiana) program Little Brother Gordon and Big Brother Joe enjoyed going to the movie theaters, attending our agency sponsored Big Futures Invest Ed events, and their most favorite playing video games such as the Nintendo Switch playing Kirby, Super Smash Bros, and the Forgotten Land. Gordon shared, "Joe has taught me how to express myself more. I learned how to express myself more freely and not hide or be afraid of sharing my passions." Joe shared, "It has been an impactful experience to help someone else out and help him grow through the challenges. I can learn and grow as well."
Gordon has shared from his relationship with Joe he has gotten a lot of McDonald’s, Steak n Shake, and a friend who listens to him and shares the same interest. If Joe could share one thing with his Little, he would say, "He is like a little brother to me. We have had a lot of good times and a lot of times that required growing together."
The BBBSCI Family will be rooting for both Gordon and Joe after graduating from the program. We wish you both the best of luck!
