At the 2011 “Achieving Academic and Social Success: Supporting Youth through Mentoring” National Mentoring Summit, First Lady Michelle Obama introduced and shared the story of 16-year old Justina “Tina” Colvin and her mentor, Veronica Cool.

Big Brothers Big Sisters/Maryland Mentoring Partnership matched the two in a mentoring relationship in December 2009 as part of a partnership with Baltimore Talent Development High School and Wachovia/Wells Fargo.

Tina is now a “peer leader” and marching band member at her high school. Veronica, whose husband is a former Little Brother, knows first-hand the value of quality, long-term mentoring.
