Future Aggie Clinic to benefit USU SEED program

A Future Aggies Clinic for all Cache Valley elementary school children and their parents is Friday, April 2, at the George Nelson Fieldhouse on the campus of Utah State University. Proceeds from the clinic will go to the SEED program in USU’s Jon M. Huntsman School of Business. “This will feature some of our USU student-athletes hosting an athletic clinic for elementary-aged kids,” said Kevin Miller of SEED, “teaching them about their favorite sport and giving them a chance to develop their skills in these sports.” The clinic will include Aggie student-athletes who play football, basketball, volleyball, soccer and track and also those involved in cheerleading. A dinner will follow the clinic, Café Sabor is catering the event, and there will be a raffle with giveaways of a WII gaming system, signed T-shirts, jerseys and game balls plus gift cards, movie tickets and official USU apparel. The USU SEED program helps send students from the Huntsman School of Business to Peru and Uganda to educate them about business and provide loans to start new businesses. “The SEED program gives our students the needed education for entrepreneurial opportunities,” said Miller, “and gives them the chance to work with people from third world countries who need the help but don’t otherwise have access to the funding, because interest rates are so high. “The SEED program offers them a micro-loan so they can get their business started, to get themselves out of poverty, and to help these countries with their economies.” The clinic runs from 6-8 p.m., including the dinner. Cost is $20 per child and $10 per parent, which includes a raffle ticket. Other raffle tickets can be purchased at the door.
