USSA announces new education program
The U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association (USSA) has announced a partnership with U.S. Performance Academy, an accredited online high school, to provide student athletes on the national team with a flexible online high school education program. According to a press release, the program will give the students learning coaches, teachers and college counseling. “Education opportunities and academic success are very important to many of our younger athletes and their families,” said Julie Glusker, head of athlete career and education for USSA. “Keeping up with schoolwork demands self-sufficiency and time management, and USPA effectively inspires and instills these skills in our athletes.” For more information, visit ussa.org.
United Way of Salt Lake seeks volunteers
The United Way of Salt Lake is looking for volunteers to help provide school supplies for students returning to classrooms this fall. According to the organization’s website, the annual Stuff the Bus event will provide school supplies for more than 11,000 children in the state who come from low-income families. Those who wish to get involved can donate school supplies to the cause — or even host a supply drive. Then, on August 27, volunteers will stuff backpacks with the supplies at Rio Tinto Stadium in Sandy. For more information, visit stuffthebus.uw.org.
