As the school year begins, Stu Amrhein from Riverdale Les Schwab and 'Ainu Kaufusi, a senior at East High School, talked about Les Schwab’s commitment to supporting the local community through its longstanding sponsorship of the Utah High School Activities Association. Their founder, Les Schwab, believed in supporting the communities where his employees live and work. For more than 11 years, Les Schwab Tire Centers in Utah have proudly supported the Utah High School Activities Association and it's been a great way for them to help the local community grow good kids.

Les Schwab's UHSAA support includes donating funds so young people can participate in after-school activities. Their partnership allows them to support a variety of activities including music, theater, debate, speech and sports. In addition to supporting the organization as a whole, Les Schwab sponsored this year’s UHSAA Dare2Lead conference.

The conference is an annual event that promotes leadership skills and addresses issues facing students across the state. Two high school students from each of the UHSAA’s member schools are invited to attend the conference. Group leaders moderate discussions with the high school participants on topics such as teamwork, influence, building values and problem-solving skills.
