New Pisgah High School graduate Dwayne has enlisted in the U.S. Navy and leaves for boot camp on July 7.
Dwayne played on the football team and was a member of the JROTC at Pisgah High. He’s been with Big Brothers Big Sisters since 2015, a year after he lost his father. Dwayne’s Big Brother is Bobbie.
“The program has helped me so much throughout my life,” Dwayne said. “It paired me with an amazing Big Brother who has been there for me through thick and thin. Big Brothers and Big Sisters is an amazing program. They’ve always motivated me to keep going on in life, always checking up on me and my Big Brother.”
Now, Dwayne is excited to begin his eight-year contract with the military.
“Thank you, BBBS, for everything you guys have done for me,” he said. “You’ve made a big impact on my life.”
