Champions of Mentoring Breakfast

Friday, June 7, 2019 - 7:30am to 10:00am
Thank you for celebrating our 15th annual Champions of Mentoring breakfast with us.
This year, we honored our 2019 Champions of Mentoring, David Simas, CEO of Obama Foundation, and the Boston Business Journal, represented by Carolyn Jones, Market President. We also heard the triumphant story of the 2019 KELLY Award scholar, Nia-Mya, a student of the Muriel Snowden International School, and had a special message delivered from her mentor Marisa, matched through Big Sister Association of Greater Boston.
