How do I contact the BIG Staff?

To streamline communication between BIG and the five high schools BIG serves, we have assigned a Strategic Partner Developer to each of the high schools.  They will serve as the point of contact during registration time, dealing with transportation issues, and more.

If you are a counselor at Kennedy High School, Linn-Mar High School, or Jefferson High School, contact Amanda Zhorne (

If you are a counselor at Prairie High School, Washington High School, or Alburnett High School, contact Laura Seyfer (

There is also a directory of staff members at both BIG tables including educators, interns, leadership coaches, and our executive director.

How do I stay in the loop on what’s happening at BIG?

We utilize Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and our website to share news and information about what students are doing at BIG. Please follow us on all social media platorms
