Here is a link to the original story on the team's website.
Join us at Fifth Third Field on Sunday, September 4 as the Hens, Esurance and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwestern Ohio recognize Kendall Smith, one of the 14 Esurance Rising Star Students Program winners, during a pregame ceremony.
About the Rising Star Students Program
The Rising Star Students Program aims to recognize individuals who were ‘Rising Stars’ in his or her community. To be eligible, the nominees had to be classified as “Bigs” or “Littles” in the Big Brothers Big Sister Program. Nominations for the Rising Star Students program were made in July and August by BBBS agencies.
Kendall is a notable area student who enrolled as a “Little” in the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwestern Ohio to help with the challenges of adolescence. During her time at The Toledo School for the Arts, she learned to play 11 instruments and performed well academically.
She is currently studying music at Capital University and aspires to play in international orchestra and teach music as a professor. Smith will be presented with a $5,000 check from Esurance for college expenses.
Help us celebrate all of her accomplishments!
