The Story of Ken Suchan

Ken Suchan has been many things to Big Brothers Big Sisters over the years, and though he keeps adding titles (donor, ambassador, mentor, supporter, etc.) his focus has always been on producing as many positive outcomes and empowering relationships as possible.

Ken originally became involved with Big Brothers Big Sisters due in part to the warm, loving, and empowering relationship he had with his own childhood mentor. 

"Initially he was a complete stranger to me, but as we spent more time together, you could see the impact the relationship was having on both of us. Seeing something blossom like that is something you will never forget, I know I haven’t.”

When given the opportunity years later, Ken sought out the program with excitement; wanting to give a child the same life changing memories and foundation for a solid life. 

Ken has always felt a great sense of personal pride about his involvement with Big Brothers Big Sisters. He encourages others to get involved in whatever way they can. Even with the responsibilities of being a successful realtor and family man, Ken has always found the time to change lives. He has successfully mentored 2 Littles, one as an In-School Mentor, and the other through the Traditional match program.  

"I've gotten so much more out of this experience than what I've put into"

says Ken. Big Brothers Big Sisters, and more importantly, his mentees would agree. Thank you Ken for your passion, dedication, and contribution.
