Boyle Investment Company received the “Defender of Potential Corporate Partner Award” from Big Brothers Big Sisters of Middle Tennessee (BBBSMT) during their annual Better Together Breakfast. This award recognizes companies that have shown extraordinary dedication to BBBSMT in defending the potential of children in the community through volunteerism, financial support and advocacy. 

The Boyle team dedicated this award to their late colleague Venus Campbell. Venus passionately served BBBSMT, dedicating her time to helping children facing adversity, as well as reminding volunteers, mentors and donors of their importance. She stewarded over $170,000 in contributions to BBBSMT through Boyle’s CityPark development, where she served as property manager.

In July, Doug Halleen, vice president of BBBSMT, presented Venus with a plaque honoring her steadfast work for the organization. She shared that she was planning a new project to ensure all the “Bigs” felt appreciated by writing them letters of encouragement and giving them packets of seeds to symbolize the important seeds they have planted in the youth of the community. Instead of turning inward, she continued to focus on coming alongside those volunteering their time and efforts for BBBSMT. This act of kindness exemplified Venus – her tenacity, her vibrant spirit and her loving heart.
