Big, Little Brother and Sister of the Year for Tampa Bay recognized

Big Brother Chris Butler of Largo and his Little Brother Elgin, who have been matched for more than five years, have been named the Big Brother and Little Brother of the Year for Big Brother Big Sister of Tampa Bay, the nation's fourth largest BBBS agency representing Pinellas, Hillsborough, Pasco, Polk, Citrus, Hernando and Sumter counties. Big Sister Roxanne Connor of Safety Harbor and her Little Sister Megan, who have been matched in the school-based program at Eisenhower Elementary School in Clearwater for the past three years, have been named the Big Sister and Little Sister of the Year. Big Brothers and Big Sisters are adult volunteers who are matched with children facing adversity (called "Littles") for professionally supported one-on-one mentoring. Last year BBBS Tampa Bay matched more than 2,850 children with caring, positive role models. The honorees are now eligible to compete for Florida's Bigs and Littles of the Year, which will be determined later this year.
