Meet our friend Devonte!
The BEAT staff first met Devonte at our 2017 Christmas Angels party. Hit quickly hit it off with the staff, talking about his love of basketball and the Golden State Warriors -- and of course like every 11-year-old kid, he loved the photo booth.
Devonte was one of the many kids on the waiting list for Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Middle Tennessee.
Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Middle Tennessee is an organization that helps children realize their potential and build their futures.
Devonte's mother, Sherley, was referred to the program through his school after his father passed away in August of last year. Sherley wanted Devonte to have a positive role model in his life, as well as have someone he could just talk and express himself to. She knew he would be able to gain this positive experience through the Big Brothers, Big Sisters program.
After being on the waiting list for 6 months.... Devonte finally matched with his Big!
Meet Zach, Devonte's new Big Brother!
These two could not be a better match!
There are many Nashville area kids, just like our friend Devonte, that are needing a Big Brother or Big Sister. If you are interested in learning more about the Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Middle Tennessee or becoming a Big check out their website HERE!
