City Employee Named Big Brother of the Year


Lloydminster, AB/SK - John Stevens, Senior Manager, Health and Wellness has been named as the 2017 Big Brother of the Year, by Big Brothers Big Sisters of Lloydminster.

Stevens, who became a Big Brother in 2013, was initially drawn to the program for the opportunity to positively shape a young person's development.

“I have been so fortunate to receive great mentorship and development opportunities throughout my life and I have always felt the need to pay it forward in some way,” said Stevens. “We have both learned the value of patience and trust through this friendship and in so many ways it has helped prepare me for fatherhood.”

Big Brothers Big Sisters describes Stevens a quiet leader, who is a solid and stable role model that makes weekly visits with his Little Brother a priority.

After the years of excursions and friendship, the pair crossed into the realm of family with Stevens hosting his Little Brother and his Mother as guests at his wedding in 2016.

In a statement made at the Big Brothers Big Sisters AGM Stevens’ Little Brother noted:

“I remember feeling comfortable with John and that I could discuss anything with him. Our friendship grew from there. I want to thank you for being my friend and letting me into your life. You have given me so many words of wisdom to live by and I will always remember those. I look forward to our friendship continuing to grow.”
