Match: Little – Leonardo Big – David O’Tousa

Match Date:  June 19, 2013

Little’s High School: North Central High School

Little Brother Leonardo and Big Brother David O’Tousa have been matched together for 10 years. Leonardo graduated from North Central High School in November 2022. Come Fall 2023 Leonardo will be attending Vincennes University studying Aeromechanics.

During their time in the BBBSCI program Little Brother Leonardo and Big Brother David enjoyed going to the park, playing tennis downtown, and attending an agency-sponsored event Match Anniversary party where they could go-kart. Leonardo shared that his Big Brother David taught him how to be more social and helped him find his voice. He has looked forward to hanging around David, seeing his new baby and new house. David has learned from Leonardo patience and looks forward to showing him his new home!

David said if he could share one thing with Leonardo about his impact on his life he would say, "Leo we matched during a chaotic time in my life outside of BBBS, and I think those early day of our match brought a little bit of stability at a time I really needed it! And with so many great memories throughout the years … Meals, Putt-Putt, video games, movies, bowling, even dull schoolwork. Thanks for being my little buddy, even if you are not so little anymore." The BBBSCI Family will be rooting for both Leonardo and David after graduating from the program. We wish you both the best of luck!
