Kelly & Madison
Kelly Van Scoyk and her Little Sister Madison have packed a lot into their first year together. With her kids in college and having done other volunteer work for her church and the homeless shelter, Kelly was ready to be a positive influence on a child’s life by being a mentor with Big Brothers Big Sisters.
Kelly and Madison hit it off right away! They like to do anything that requires energy! They snowshoe, ride their bikes on the trails, walk her dogs, spend time at the playground, play mini-golf and most recently – Kelly got a riding lesson from Madison. Maddy’s great grandparents have a farm and horses and Maddy is quite the equestrian.
Kelly has found that mentoring offers the flexibility she needs and all the fun she enjoyed when her kids were younger. Maddy says “I have so much fun with Kelly and the time we spend together is awesome!” Maddy is looking forward to doing some clay pottery projects this coming fall and learning to play tennis from Kelly.
