Our 2022 Mentor of the Year was Allen Bretz. Below, we met Jonathan, his mentee, and Allen to discuss their relationship.

2022 Mentor of the Year, Allen Bretz

We have a good friendship and like to discuss many current things. I go to many of his soccer matches, meet him for lunch or dinner, and talk about his future.

Allen, Mentor of the Year

He is very special. I think it was unique how easily we could talk with each other and feel comfortable. He has also influenced me to look at other careers to keep in mind.

"From breakfast lessons in my kitchen to enjoying the Washington County Fair together, Chris and I have grown closer and learned more about each other and ourselves through this great program. This is truly a program that enriches the lives of students and mentors!"

"Sam, her mom, sister, and I participated in the Kiddie Park clean-up 2017, where Ron Adams, Bartlesville Playground Association president, approached me to share a dream. He took me to a large space west of the restrooms and explained that he had always wanted the space to be developed into a garden. I shared his dream with Samantha, and she eagerly accepted the challenge. It was a challenge."

Our children are our future, and I recommend mentoring to anyone who wants to make a difference with a child, the community, and life in general.
