Wayne Knight became interested in Big Brothers Big Sisters through a Big Sister who was already involved in the program. Wayne attended a fundraiser called “Rise and Shine Breakfast”, heard about the program there and decided to apply. Wayne was introduced to his Little Brother, Zyshonne, on February 18, 2009 through the School Based program. Wayne’s involvement with the agency goes beyond being a Big Brother. He has been a multi-year donor for the agency. He always makes the time to help out with Big Brothers Big Sisters activities and events. We can count on him whenever extra help is needed.
“I am thankful for taking that first step and moving from thinking about being a Big Brother to becoming one. Each life touches so many others and Zye has certainly touched my life and others around me. I am humbled every time we see each other, he has helped me grow as a person and for that I am thankful every day.” – Big Brother Wayne
