Lehigh Valley Mentors are making an impact Jade and her Big Sister, Chris Kruklitis, just met in January through Big Brothers Big Sisters Site-Based Program at Jefferson Elementary. Both had a great time getting to know one another and are looking forward to the new school year. When asked about the best part of her experience, Jade had this to say: "Chris is awesome! I liked when we played games and made jewelry for Mother’s Day. When we'd play Connect Four I usually won, then I'd do my victory dance. Chris is always there for me and makes sure that I am safe. I cannot wait to see her again." In reflecting on her time with Jade, Chris had these thoughts about her Match: "Going every week and seeing Jada’s smiling face was tremendously rewarding. Jada was always excited to see me and do an [activity]. I enjoy the [BBBS] organization. I think it is organized and well ran. Jada’s positive feedback gives me a positive feeling about what I am doing."  Allentown
