Foundation Testimonies

Art & Earlene Knox

“When Tom and Nancy Osborne introduced the Teammates Mentoring Program I thought what a wonderful way to influence the lives of our young People. I have had many mentors during my lifetime who have had a tremendous influence on me. Mentoring is so important and young lives are being influenced for the good through the Teammates Mentoring program. I like the foundation as a way to contribute to this great program.”
– Arthur L. Knox

Jim & Suzanne Pillen

“Because of Coach Osborne’s impact on my life, it was an easy decision to get on board over 20 years ago to support the TeamMates Mentoring Program.  Seeing the impact on countless young people’s lives by spending a small amount of time with a student – less than one hour a week at school – has huge benefits, and this is a team that Suzanne and I want to be a part of for the long term.  The TeamMates Mentoring Program is making generational impacts and will stand the test of time.”
– Jim Pillen

John & Mary Schuele

“Mary and I are life-long investors in mentoring because it easily provides the best cost-benefit of all social programs. It requires one to be patient but the TeamMates Program creates life-long benefits for the child/mentee that will also impact future generations.   Mary and I are entering our 30th year of formal mentoring and we know it works and our daughters now mentor as well.”
– John Schuele

“TeamMates gave me the hope and motivation I needed to stay on the right track in life by staying in school, graduating from high school, and furthering my education to reach my true and full potential.” – TeamMates mentee
