Dorchester County Council recently proclaimed January to be Mentoring Month in the county. “At the heart of America’s promise is the belief that we all do better when everyone has a fair shot at reaching for their dreams. Throughout our nation’s history Americans of every background have worked to uphold this ideal, joining together in common purpose to serve as mentors, and lift up our country’s youth.” So saying, Councilman Rick Price presented a proclamation to Jessica Mimms, Eastern Shore Director of Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Greater Chesapeake. “Nine million children in America are in need of a mentor,” said Ms. Simms, accepting the proclamation. “We work very hard in the community to provide children with mentors, and we provide those mentors with support. Big Brothers/Big Sisters works with our local boards of education to help children reach their full potential. I thank you very much for recognizing January as Mentoring Month.”
