Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Mid-South is proud to announce the appointment of Susan George as Executive Director, effective April 12, 2017. Susan will oversee day-to-day operations of the organization with a focus on expanding the program and fund development. She will work toward carrying out the mission and Strategic Plan of Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Mid-South.
Susan has held a leadership position at Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Mid-South for over 20 years and previously held the position of Vice President of Programs and Operations for the organization.
She was instrumental in providing the strategic planning and supervision that facilitated exponential growth of the agency's on-to-one Community Based mentoring relationships, reaching a thousand children served in 2009. She was influential in cultivating partnerships with leaders in the community such as Nike, Inc., The TeamUP Memphis Grizzlies and Comcast Internet Essentials.
Susan has been an advocate for children for more than twenty-five years. She is looking forward to leading Big Brothers Big Sisters and making a difference in the lives so many youth. “My greatest joy comes from helping to make Memphis an amazing place to live, by helping children facing adversity see a world outside of their own and reach their full potential through mentoring”.
Big Brothers Big Sisters’ mission is to help children reach their full potential through professionally supported, one-to-one relationships with measurable outcomes. Amazingly, twelve months in a Big/Little match relationship, these children are twice as likely as their peers to avoid risky behavior such as drug use and truancy, perform better in school and have improved relationships with family members and in the community.
