Meet our Match of the Week, Riley and Bill!

Do you remember that person from your childhood who made an impact on you? Maybe it was a friend of your family, a teacher or an uncle who went the extra mile for you. At Big Brothers Big Sisters there are many children right here in the Verde Valley and Sedona waiting for a "Big."

Meet our Match of the Week, Riley and Bill!

 Riley and Bill have been matched for over five years! Riley will be graduating from high school soon and hopes to become a mechanic. Bill describes Riley as a self-motivated young man and believes strongly that he will be successful in whatever path he chooses for himself.

Bill feels that he's been lucky and spoiled to have been matched with such a great kid. He says that, "it has been fun to re-visit my own childhood and hang with Riley". Riley's enthusiasm is a joy to be around. It has been a great pleasure to watch him grow up.

Riley's says his favorite thing about being matched with Bill has been that they just "get along so well. We always have so much fun together." He feels that Bill has been an excellent Big Brother.

During their time together they have formed a very strong friendship. They have a lot fun together and many common interests. Everyone agrees that no matter what, Bill and Riley will be friends for life.
