In 2013 alone, more than 1,600 children in Middle Tennessee received one-on-one support from a Big Brothers Big Sisters of Middle Tennessee mentor – one such mentor is ISTS President and CEO Becky Sharpe. Since 2007, Sharpe has actively supported BBBS of Middle Tennessee by serving as a Big Sister to children within the organization. This year, Sharpe will also assist with fundraising events and strategic planning, as she has been invited to join Big Brothers Big Sisters of Middle Tennessee as a member of the 2014 Board.

“I am delighted to be expanding my role at BBBS,” said Sharpe. “Although being a BIG is by far the more rewarding of the two roles I play with BBBS, I hope that – as a board member – I can help the organization grow so that others can have the chance to have the life-altering experience I have had as a BIG.”

A welcome reception, sponsored by Tennessee Bank and Trust, was held last week to introduce Becky and incoming Board President Tom Price. Check out our photo album here.
