Big Brothers Big Sisters of South Alabama mentors recognized
Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey recently recognized Terri Cain as Alabama Big Sister of the Year for 2019 and Jared Burress as Alabama Big Brother of the Year for 2019. Both are local area volunteer mentors for Big Brothers Big Sisters of South Alabama (BBBSSA) located at 3 South Royal St. in downtown Mobile. It is one of six affiliated agencies found throughout the state.
BBBS is a 115-year old 501(c)(3), headquartered in Tampa, organized with the goal of helping children reach their potential via professionally supported one-to-one relationships with actively involved, thoroughly vetted adult mentors. It is reportedly one of the largest youth mentoring outfits of its kind in the country.
Cain, and Little Sister Rosie, have been matched since 2012 in BBBSSA’s school-based program. Some of the areas that Cain has assisted her Little over the years has included teaching self-confidence, developing friendships, avoiding peer pressure and good decision-making through a positive self-image.
Cain also works with the local nonprofit in other capacities, such as formulating new fund-raising ideas, activities, and ways to engage local businesses in charitable contributions.
Burress, and Little Brother Matthew, have been matched since 2014 in the agency’s community-based program. He worked with his Little on developing such soft skills as a strong work ethic, persistence, developing friendships and self-esteem.
In her comments, Governor Ivey urged adults across the state to get involved in mentoring because of the potentially positive impact the mentoring relationships have on local communities.
The six BBBS agencies across the state include: BBBS of Greater Birmingham, BBBS of North Alabama, BBBS of Northeast Alabama, BBBS of the Shoals, BBBS of West Alabama and BBBS of South Alabama. More information about the local office can be found on its website, bbbsa.org.

The Council represents 41 companies that own and operate over 80 shipyards, with facilities on all three U.S. coasts, the Great Lakes, the inland waterways system, Alaska and Hawaii.
Austal USA is an advanced ship manufacturer headquartered in Mobile with post-delivery operations in San Diego and Singapore. Its headquarters and manufacturing facility are located on a campus designed with moving assembly lines and module construction guided by lean manufacturing principles.
To date the shipyard has contracts to build 19 Independence-variant Littoral Combat Ships (LCS) and 14 Expeditionary Fast Transports (EPF) for the U.S. Navy. To date, nine LCS and ten EPF have been delivered and the shipyard is on schedule to deliver one more EPF and two more LCS before the end of the year.
