Big Brothers Big Sisters has named Greg Holcomb as its new Development Officer

September 30, 2008: Big Brothers Big Sisters of Lorain County, the largest one-to-one youth-mentoring organization in Lorain County, has named Greg Holcomb as its new Development Officer.
As Development Officer, Holcomb will be responsible for the local fundraising strategy for Big Brothers Big Sisters.  He will help implement fundraisers to develop the fund development operation and strengthen and sustain relationships with donors in order to maximize the mentoring programs of Big Brothers Big Sisters.

“During these economically troubling times we need a Development Officer with tenacity and vision. We see the community needs increasing and resources becoming scarce. We simply must make the most of each opportunity,” said Lise Day, CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters. 
Greg Holcomb is a lifelong resident of Lorain, born and raised on the South Side where he attended St. John the Baptist Elementary and Lorain Southview High School. Greg is a graduate of John Carroll University earning a Bachelor of Arts degree with double majors in Political Science and History. He is a dedicated member of his community and was elected to the Lorain City Council in 2005 at the age of 22.

In the past Greg has been an appointed member of the Lorain City Council Recreation Task Force, South Lorain Community Development Corporation Board of Trustees, Co-Advisor of the Southview Model United Nations debate club and was a member of the Steelworkers local 8845. He remains active in the South Lorain CDC as a non-voting advisory member. He is also a member of the Black River Historical Society and the Knights of Columbus.
“Greg’s dedication to the community, especially in creating opportunities for youth to succeed makes him a natural fit for Big Brothers Big Sisters, as we strategically identify innovative ways to raise funds in order to serve more children in this rapidly changing global economy,” said Day.
