Wethersfield Couple Honored For Mentoring

Hartford Courant (Wethersfield, CT) July 8, 2012

"A local couple has been honored by a private school for being mentors since 2006 to a Hartford boy who now attends the school. 
Wayne 'Bear' Holcombe and his wife, Bobi Molchan, are mentors through Nutmeg Big Brothers Big Sisters. They were honored June 14 at an annual reception sponsored by the Intensive Education Academy in West Hartford. The couple were praised for their extraordinary commitment.
