Many Knowledge Quest graduates express interest in giving back to the community and several have volunteered and provided invaluable support to KQ. As directors realized that Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Bermuda/BBBS has ongoing need for mentors, they contacted Big Brothers and scheduled a Lunch and Learn on June 15th in Hamilton for KQ graduates and friends.
Patrina O’Connor and President George Jones from BBBS spoke to a very well attended lunch and then showed an informative, heart-warming video. Consequently, three Knowledge Quest graduates and Robin O’Neil from Passports to College all signed up to become “Bigs”. BBBS Directors Joanne Wohlmuth and Rosette Simmons were in attendance as well. Co-Presidents Kathy Lines and Cynthia Cox as well as graduates Colina Outerbridge, Jecoa Tucker, and Curtis Richardson attended from Knowledge Quest. Thanks go to Cheyne Capital for the lunch and office space. We look forward to holding more informative sessions with Big Brothers later in 2012.
