Big and Little Spotlight
You have to go back to 2007 to reminisce about the initial match meeting between Stacey and Joey. Yes, it was eight years ago in a comfortable living room setting that they met for the first time. Stacey (lovingly referred to as Little Stacey) was a quiet, shy and serious video game player and Joey, a young adult wanting to positively impact a young boy’s life. Mom wanted to get Stacey engaged with peers and her thoughts were that perhaps finding him a Big Brother would help in that endeavor. Stacey and Joey spent weekends together throwing the football, attending family/church functions and grabbing a bite to eat – growing their friendship and trust with each passing moment.
Little did his mom know at the time that she would see her “Little Stacey”, now a young man, walk across the stage to receive his high school diploma from The Middle College at NC A&T. And the accolades don’t stop there. Stacey graduated Valedictorian and earned his Service Learning Diploma. Over time, getting involved in the community did become a passion for Stacey and coaching basketball at the Y a fitting way to give back. Stacey will attend NC A&T in the fall and major in history education. What a proud moment for all involved – one that Joey was there to witness.Congratulations Stacey! We look forward to hearing wonderful things from you in years to come!
