Ashley Beggs Seiler has been presented with the Big Staff of the Year Award by Big Brothers Big Sisters of Eastern Missouri.

January is National Mentoring month at Big Brothers Big Sisters and the agency presented a portion of its annual awards at an event Jan. 20, at the St. Louis Club.

The Big Staff of the Year honor, highlights an employee who exemplifies the agency’s core values and who stands out as one who not simply accomplishes her work, but consistently exceeds expectations. BBBSEMO President and CEO Becky James- Hatter, added, “For 13 years I have watched in awe how Ashley Beggs Seiler has worked; determined to do a great job for the great kids of Cape Girardeau. I extend my heartfelt thanks to a truly dedicated leader.”

Seiler has been an employee in the agency’s Cape Girardeau office for 13 years.

Beginning as a Project Manager in 2003, Seiler hit the ground running, demonstrating the leadership, innovative spirit and compassionate heart that led the way to her being named Executive Director in two short years.

Her tireless efforts have contributed to the regional office’s ability to serve 350 children in quality one-on-one mentoring relationships every year. Seiler played, and continues to play, a key role in the enhancement and expansion of ABCToday. Seiler also volunteers as a Big Sister.

“My journey at Big Brothers Big Sisters has been an unbelievable one,” Seiler shared, adding, “When I began 13 years ago, I could never have imagined the wonderful opportunities that this agency has afforded me in working within the Cape Girardeau community.”

Other honorees at the National Mentoring Month celebration included Al Snyder, Big Brother of the Year; Becky Bromberg, Big Sister of the Year; Metal Exchange Corporation, Corporate Partner of the Year; and The Magic House, Community Partner of the Year.

The celebration will continue on April 10 when the agency honors the successes of its Little Brothers and Little Sisters with additional awards at The Big Event.

This is the 15th year for National Mentoring Month, a campaign aimed at expanding quality mentoring opportunities to connect more of our community’s young people with caring adults.
