Meeting Keewan

Meeting Keewan story image
KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Public school kids all went back to class Tuesday, getting back into a learning routine after a long summer off.

But some kids need more guidance outside of the classroom as well. They need a mentor.

Tonight, we'd like you to meet Keewan, who is looking for a big brother.

You'll have to act fast if you want to keep up with Keewan--he spends his endless summer days darting around Kalamazoo's Kik Pool, kicking, diving, racing, and playing keep-away.

Keewan also likes football, basketball, hanging out with his friends, and is a big fan of pasta, instantly endearing him to our Andy Dominianni.

Keewan is the youngest of 7 children--everyone's little brother; but he'd like a big brother all his own to splash around with.

"what do you think you'd want to do with a big brother if you got one?" we asked.

"Go to the beach and hang out with him," Keewan told us.

It's so important that Keewan find a good male role-model soon, because although he's only 10, Keewan has big plans of his own to help other kids someday.

He's also looking forward to starting 4th grade at Edison Environmental Science Academy.

He says he loves math the most--hopefully soon someone will add themselves to his life.

For more information on Big Brothers, Big Sisters, call the agency at (269)382-6800.

We'll be featuring a new local boy or girl every month on Newschannel 3.

We're hoping to match as many kids as we can with Big Brothers or Big Sisters.
