KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Carlvon is a 7th grader at Maple Street Middle School and he's already been waiting two years for a Big Brother.
Carlvon's a happy kid, but it's clear from meeting him that there's something missing in his life.
Carlvon says he can find very little to keep him busy these days, but he has big dreams that, if they come true, will transport him far beyond his north Kalamazoo neighorhood. He wants to be drafted by the NBA and then get a law degree.
Watch his story in the video report above.
