In 1982, a Help Wanted ad seeking mentors was placed in the Clinton Herald. Peggy Fisher saw the intriguing ad & knew she wanted to help. Peggy called the number to learn more about the Big Brothers Big Sisters program. It was a slow process at first, but once she was matched, she & Jessica were the 2nd match in Clinton. Peggy & Jessica were matched for 5 years & formed a great friendship. After bring matches with Jessica, she was matched for a short time with Little Sister, Holly. Peggy enjoyed the experience so much that she has been a Big Sister ever since! Peggy has had 4 Little Sisters over the past 30+ years, exuding her willingness to make a difference in the lives of her Little Sisters.
Peggy Fisher has been described as cheerful, positive, patient, sincere, nonjudgmental, reliable, & happy. Michelle, former Little Sister, credits Peggy for helping her succeed in life & always being there for her! They were matched when Michelle was just 5 years old. Whether it was going over spelling words over the phone together, finding fun ways to spending time with one another, or Peggy helping Michelle with her aspirations of college, Peggy was always there. Peggy’s recent Little Sister, Emily, says that she, too, was matched with Peggy at 5 years old. Emily says that there is never a dull moment when Peggy is around & they have enjoyed going to the movies, trying new restaurants, & that Peggy always gives the best advice. Both, Michelle & Emily agree that they have been honored to be Peggy’s Little Sisters & give her much credit to who they are today through Peggy’s guidance & friendship. (Picture above is Michelle & Emily with Peggy when she got married in 2015!)
Peggy’s supportive & caring nature has had a significant impact on the lives of her Little Sisters. BBBS of Clinton has been blessed with her continual commitment & with that, Congratulations to Peggy Fisher- BBBS of Clinton’s Big of the Year 2017! This award is well-deserved & applauded by our Staff, Board of Directors, Volunteers, & Community!
