Eric Stockmann, Past President

I became involved with Big Brothers Big Sisters 6 years ago. It started with a casual conversation with Deb. I mentioned I might be interested in joining the Board of Directors. A few months later she literally stopped me in the street to see if I was still interested! Glad she did. This is a truly amazing group of people who are dedicated to making a difference in children's lives. Having served as both vice president and president over the past 4 years has allowed me to work with a very forward thinking and progressive board and staff. To say it has been rewarding is an understatement. I have definitely gotten more out of my involvement then I have given.

I grew up in Port Burwell, and moved to Tillsonburg about 15 years ago. My husband Dan and I have 5 children Brendan, Nelle, Susie, Noah and Quintin. I first met Deb 12 years ago when I became a volunteer with the agency. I have been a big sister, big bunch leader, friend of the agency and now a board member for the last 4 years. Working with this agency has been very rewarding and I plan to continue working with them for a long time to come.

I am currently a stay at home parent. Also a member of the Canadian Armed Forces, Royal Canadian Artillery Reserves, 56 Field Regiment, 69th Battery, Simcoe, Ontario, Bombardier. I have been involved with BBBS Ingersoll & Tillsonburg for roughly 8 wonderful years and truly enjoys the sense of community and giving nature of all staff and volunteers involved. I just want to help contribute and support an amazing local organization which always gives back to children who can benefit from the programs offered.
