Larry Siegel has been a dedicated mentor for the past year and a half. His mentee is now a 6th grade student at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel. During their times together, Larry exposes his mentee to many new experiences; they’ve begun reading books on a higher level than when they first met, and have engaged in new activities like basketball and chess. When Larry’s mentee transferred to an unfamiliar school, Larry made sure that he continued to be a part of his life. Larry understood that transferring schools would be a difficult process. He figured out how to continue meeting with his mentee so that he would know to count on him through any hard time. Beyond working with his mentee, Larry has touched the lives of his mentee’s whole family by making the extra effort to connect them with other helpful resources in the community. Thank you for all that you do, Larry; your service and dedication have not gone unnoticed. Keep up the great work!
