Sammy and Clint - matched for 10 Years!
my name is Sammy Wilson and I am in the 12th grade at Sexton High
School. I live with my mother, Alechia and step father, Derek. I have been
involved with Big Brothers Big Sisters for over 10 years and matched with my
big brother, Clint Nemeth, during that time.
Since being matched with Clint I
have learned a lot of life lessons. Every time Clint picks me up we have a
great time, no matter what we were doing. The first experience I remember
having with Clint is when we went bowling at Marvel Lanes. My most favorite thing we ever did was when we
went camping with the Big Brothers Big Sisters program at Sleepy Hallow State
Park. It was fun playing hide in seek in
the woods, eating s’mores, and sleeping in a tent. It has been a fun experience
doing things with Clint in my life and I want to keep having these experiences
as I grow into an adult. Ever since being matched with Clint I have always
wanted to be just like him. Clint is a great role model for me and I enjoy spending
time with him. Whenever I come around
his family it feels like my family. It’s
my second home. I am looking forward to having a successful life just like
Clint. Recently, at our outings Clint
and I have been talking about college. I
have been accepted to Lansing Community College and thinking about a degree in
computer sciences. We also talk about
applying for scholarships, life after high school and then life after college.
