I shot this for the Charlotte Observer almost two weekends ago. This was a day for kids involved with Big Brother and Big Sister to have an opportunity to spend a day on the lake. Most of these kids have never been to Lake Norman and have grown up in the inner city. I was excited to be part of this day because this organization was close to my heart. I was involved in this program during my undergraduate days at Saint Michael’s College in Burlington, Vt. I did notice that the kids seemed to be older in this program. In the near future, I would love to become more involved with this group once settled down into a more permanent location.
