The Taishoff Family Foundation made their generous gift to Pro USA recently. The Pro USA youth scholarship grant will bring opportunities to youth of the Minnesota communities through sports empowerment. The Taishoff Family Foundation supports Pro USA's mission and decided to make their gift to the organization for use to provide sport scholarship to kids, who would not otherwise be able to participate in sporting academy program due to family financial situations, to be able to participate for a year.
Presenting the check, Mr. Duannah Siryon, Executive Director of Pro USA, thank the kids and their parents for being part of an academy program that teaches not only the physical skills part of the game, but the health and social capacity building of themselves.
