Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Mass/Metrowest recently held the Big Show at the Hanover Theatre in honor of the organizations 15th anniversary of the College Mentor Program. Big Brothers Big Sisters honored the College of the Holy Cross for being an integral part in helping build its program. During the event the College was presented with the 2015 Bob Cousy Most Valuable Partner (MVP) Award and Nathan Pine, director of athletics, accepted the award on the College’s behalf. The award is given to an organization which goes above and beyond in support of the mission and agency of Big Brothers Big Sisters, and it is named after one of our most loyal donors and supporters, the legendary Holy Cross alumnus, Bob Cousy ’50.
“It was a privilege to accept the Bob Cousy Most Valuable Partner Award from Big Brothers Big Sisters on behalf of Holy Cross. Our student-athletes, students and staff have been heavily involved with the program in the Worcester community for the last 15 years” said Pine. “Together we are honored to have the opportunity to support mentoring in our local community, and we look forward to continuing to enhance this important partnership for many years to come.”
Nearly 300 students from Holy Cross mentor a child after school one afternoon each week.
The event was hosted by Ben Bailey, comedian and host of the popular television show “Cash Cab” and included many musical and dance performances from local College’s. Holy Cross was well represented with performances by Fools on the Hill, Holy Cross Cheer Squad, Rhythm Nation Steppaz, and Sons of Pitches.
