Amy Marlatt: Program Director

Amy Marlatt literally grew up in the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Rush County office because her mother was the Program Director for much of Amy’s childhood.  Amy joined the staff in 2016, bringing her insight from her childhood experiences as well as her time as a Big Sister to help with the transition to M.o.R.E. for Kids.  As the Program Director, Amy oversees the M.o.R.E. for Kids program, organizes fundraisers and special events, works with the Treasurer to oversee finances and budgeting, promotes the program in the community, and ensures program standards are being met.

As the Lunch Buddy program began to grow and develop, the need arose for a committed staff member to join the team.  Denise (DeeDee) Small came aboard in August of 2017 as the Lunch Buddy Coordinator.  Her smiling face, jovial attitude, and love for planting dreams in the lives of the elementary students, has enriched the Lunch Buddy Program.  We have grown from serving one county school to serving six Rush County elementary schools.  


You will see DeeDee around the schools, town, and beyond beaming with excitement about the programs M.o.R.E. for Kids has to offer our kids.  Her passion creates much excitement and desire to help create change.  Jump on board with her as a Lunch Buddy Mentor!
