Two Malvern School students were recently recognized as Big Brothers Big Sisters School-Based Match of the Year for East Central Ohio.   

Tristan Phillips and Jack McFall were selected from hundreds of matches covering eight different school districts. The Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring program has been thriving in Brown Local Schools for several years creating friendships and memories that can last a lifetime.  Phillips is a senior and McFall a seventh grade student. They have been matched for three years and spend time the school day  completing character building worksheets and “hanging out.” 

Phillips said a teacher got him interested in the program his freshman year.     

Since 1904, Big Brothers Big Sisters has operated under the belief that inherent in every child is incredible potential. As the nation’s largest donor- and volunteer-supported mentoring network, Big Brothers Big Sisters makes meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”), ages 5 through young adulthood in communities across the country. The organization develops positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people.
