Utah Jazz and Mark Miller Subaru to Unveil New Computer Lab in Taylorsville on November 11
Nearly $30,000 was donated to renovate a computer lab and purchase the Renaissance 2.0 Language Lab System with 36 stations for West Lake STEM students where 25 different languages are spoken among its multilingual student learners. Many students find it difficult to live in a new country, to understand an unfamiliar language and to adapt to new expectations. The new school equipment and language lab will accelerate language acquisition in the areas of reading, writing, listening and speaking, especially since approximately 70% of students at West Lake STEM are studying English as a second language.
“Mark Miller Subaru is proud of our long-standing partnership with the Utah Jazz and is truly honored to stand alongside them in making this significant financial contribution to West Lake Jr. High School,” said Jeff Miller, owner of Mark Miller Subaru. “We hope this investment in advanced classroom technology will help English language learners at West Lake Junior High while simultaneously connecting students from diverse backgrounds and cultures to each other in a way that is both powerful and that will change their lives.”
The Subaru Jazz and Mark Miller support education as one of their community pillars. The organizations have jointly adopted West Lake STEM and will bring three more activations to the school during the 2022-23 jazz season.
