Pete Silbaugh has been there for his mentee physically, mentally, and emotionally since day one. May marks their one year anniversary of being matched, and that’s why Pete is the perfect recipient of our May Super Mentor Award! Let’s celebrate one year of friendship and one year of whole-hearted dedication! They’ve become closer than either could have imagined. Pete showed his mentee what it means to respect others, himself, and how to be a good friend. His mentee looks up to him; he knows Pete is someone he can trust and will always be there to support him. The way Pete’s mentee makes him smile and laugh is priceless. They are an excellent example of how Bolder Options brings together unlikely friendships. In Pete’s words, “I never expected to care for my mentee like a member of my own family.” Congratulations on being Bolder’s May Super Mentor! You deserve it, Pete!
