Meet a couple of our team members for the semester! 


Maralee Frush is a senior at Ball State University study social work. She has volunteered with two local non-profits: A Better Way, and the Buley Center. At these places, she has had experience in working with children, and handling confidential information.

Maralee chose Big Brothers Big Sisters for her practicum because she’s interested in working with children in the future. “I like how BBBS creates mentoring relationships for children.” The positive impact of this organization is what drew Maralee here.

“I hope that I can help with the match support here and helping the process of matching go smoothly.” Her experience with children at the Buley Center, as well as her time at A Better Way, is evidence that she is definitely up to the job. BBBS is so excited to work with Maralee!




Bretton Judy is a student at Ball State majoring in Advertising and minoring in Marketing. Brett has interned previously at IMI (Irving Materials Incorporated) by analyzing research marketing strategies. He has also handled various social media accounts for other clubs and organizations.

Bretton “[knows] how much an older sibling can have an impact on a child,” and he looks forward to getting the chance to make that happen for the youth of this community. Bretton now gets to make his impact as the Campaign Design Intern.

Brett came to the team last semester, and has blown us away with the work he’s done for Dance For Kids Sake, as well as other fundraising materials. His work is much appreciated, and Big Brothers Big Sisters can’t wait to see what the new semester allows him to do!
