Martin F. Stein was a long-time Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) board member, Milwaukee businessman and philanthropist. He fervently believed that the solution to society’s problems was education, and he encouraged others to think the same way. “Help [children] to see the opportunities, enable them to be all they can be,” he wrote in an open letter to the public, shared following his death in March 2006.
In that spirit, fellow BBBS of Metro Milwaukee board member Guy Smith began a scholarship fund at BBBS in Marty’s name. The scholarship embodies the attitude of Marty Stein, which was to always look up and see the broadest possibilities. A college degree enables a “Little” to see the numerous possibilities for themselves and achieve their dreams.
