KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) – Newschannel 3 is pleased to introduce you to a local 5th grader who’s been hoping for a big brother for a long time.

His name is Devin, and he’s kind of like the big man on campus at Spring Valley Elementary School in Kalamazoo, but there’s still something missing in his life.

11-year-old Devin McKinley lives for football. He’s a popular kid with a lot of friends on the playground. He dreams about playing in the NFL and about becoming a police officer, but he’s hoping that another goal of his will come true sooner rather than later, he wants a big brother all his own.

“It might be more fun to get out of the house sometimes,” said Devin.

Devin’s good and math and looking forward to the summer. We’re hoping this summer can include someone new for Devin to hang out with and learn from. He’s a great kid with a big personality and definitely looking for a big brother.

Hopefully Devin won’t have to wait much longer.

For more information about Devin or Big Brothers Big Sisters, call the agency at 269-382-6800.

Newschannel 3 will be featuring a new local boy or girl every month. We’re hoping to match as many kids as we can with big brothers or big sisters.
