Most any volunteer will say they don’t give hundreds of hours each year in hopes of receiving an award or accolades, they do it because they know how much spending a few hours with a child can mean. Several such giving volunteers were celebrated May 16 at the annual Big Brothers Big Sisters Big Event. For the past five years, Mark Lyons and Chaparral Pines have sponsored the celebratory dinner at the Chaparral Pines clubhouse. This year, Jennifer and Richard Hinkie were named Big Couple of the Year; Austin Shannon was awarded High School Big Brother of the Year and Shoshanah Wright received High School Big Sister of the Year.
