On a chilly Saturday morning in November 2021, our team met two incredible BBBSMT matches to film our 2021 Match Stories of Impact video. In this blog, we’re giving you a behind-the-scenes look at our video shoot, and introducing you to the stars of the show: Katrina and CeAzia, and Bernard and Destin.
On Friday, December 10, 2021, our community gathered in celebration of all we have accomplished together in the past year, and to look ahead at our vision for 2022 and beyond. Our audience heard from BBBSMT CEO Melissa Hudson-Gant, a roundtable of community leaders, Bigs and Littles, and our agency partners about the impact of mentorship and how we are innovating to maximize our impact with intentionality in all we do.
