The Mott Foundation grieves the loss of Bryant “BB” Nolden. BB truly loved Flint. He had a vision and passion for serving all residents, especially kids. He gave to his community in so many ways — as a teacher in Flint Community Schools, a member of Flint City Council, county commissioner, executive director of the Friends of Berston, and volunteer director and chairman at Berston Field House. His passing leaves a hole in the fabric of our community. We share our deepest condolences with all who knew and loved him. In BB’s honor, flags at the Mott Foundation will fly at half-staff for the remainder of the week.
