| February 7, 2024

PITTSBURGH, Pa. (EYT) – The Pennsylvania Big Brother Big Sister Program (BBBSPGH) have announced that Pittsburgh residents, Jared Latchaw and Lindsay Litterini, have been recognized as the 2024 Pennsylvania Bigs of the Year.

This annual award is bestowed upon two mentors, known as “Bigs”, who have displayed extraordinary commitment and dedication in guiding and supporting their mentees, affectionately called “Littles”.

Jared Latchaw, a 2007 graduate of Franklin Area High School, has been a Big Brother to Jamari for six years. Lindsay Litterini, his female counterpart, has served as a Big Sister to Sarah for seven years. The relationships they have formed with their Littles are a testament to the profound impact a BBBSPGH mentor can have on a child.

“Watching their relationships in action is not only heartwarming but also a great illustration of the positive impacts a mentor has on a child,” said a representative from BBBSPGH in a recent Facebook post. “Jared and Lindsay embody the very essence of what it means to be a Big. Their dedication to their Littles is awe-inspiring and we are thrilled to recognize their efforts.”

BBBSPGH has big plans to celebrate Jared and Lindsay throughout the year and is taking this opportunity to kickstart their well-deserved recognition on a larger platform. They hope that by sharing this news, others will join in congratulating these outstanding Bigs.

“Way to go, Jared and Lindsay, and thank you for all that you do!” the representative added.

The Bigs of the Year award is a significant recognition within the BBBS community, highlighting the exemplary work done by mentors in the program. Jared and Lindsay’s dedication to their Littles exemplifies the spirit of the award and the impact of the BBBS program at its best.
