William became a Big Brother in the High School Mentoring Program in September 2008. From day one, William and his Little Brother Gerson were like two peas in a pod. William’s relaxed demeanor and friendly personality made it easy to form a friendship that has been inspirational to witness. William has led his fellow high school mentors by example in perfect attendance, meaningful interaction with the kids, and consistent helpfulness. In 2009, William received the High School Big of the Year award.
“The best thing about our friendship is we can talk about anything. And … we created a secret handshake!”
