Eleven-year-old Marquinious story image
KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) In this Big Brothers Big Sisters report, Newschannel 3 is introducing you to a very special boy, with a very special interest in science.

Hes eleven, and hes looking for a mentor, a big brother. When he came to Newschannel 3 he gravitated to the weather center and Keith Thompson.

It was a rainy day when we met eleven-year-old Marquinious, so we brought him to the station and found out how much he likes science.

My favorite subject is science, said Marquinious.

Marquinious got a crash course on the science of weather from our Chief Meteorologist Keith Thompson, and he learned a lot in not a lot of time. You could tell he would do well with a big brother, something he wants very much.

I want somebody to talk to and I want him to take me places that I haven't been, said Marquinious.

Marquinious is looking for someone to guide him through the middle school years and beyond and hes got big plans for the Big Brother hes looking forward to having.
