There's something special about coming in on a Thursday morning and seeing a little kids eyes light up. The Big Brother program at Fenn does that for 4th and new 5th graders. It gives them an opportunity to see older kids in the Fenn community and how there lives work. It's a bit like a role model. When I come in to school every Thursday, I sit down and play chess with my little brother against another pair of "brothers". It provides something to look forward to every Thursday, whether it be the banter of playing chess or the fun of victory, every little thing counts. Big Brother has provided an incredible experience for me, the ability to be a role model and to make a younger kids day, it's something special. Even though I missed out on being at the opposite end of the structure here at Fenn, I was still able to get that some role model in my brother. Maybe not in the same way, but he's still a role model in a way. Fenn does a good job of that, making sure that the younger kids have an aim to be like, or a role model to follow, no kid is ever left wandering. Everyone has something to follow, but sometimes, the ones who beat to there own path have the most fun.
