la galaxy partnership leads to new mini pitch and local scholarship

Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU) was on hand in early March for the unveiling of a new mini-pitch at Andrew Jackson Elementary School in Santa Ana, CA, and to present a full scholarship to a deserving member of the local community - all in conjunction with SNHU's partnership with Major League Soccer as well as one of its member clubs, the LA Galaxy.

The mini-pitch is part of the "20 for 20 Mini-Pitch Initiative," a joint commitment made by adidas, MLS WORKS, Southern New Hampshire University and the U.S. Soccer Foundation to create a series of 20 mini-pitches in underserved communities throughout North America.

SNHU President Paul LeBlanc awarded Santa Ana community member Veronica Rodriguez with a full scholarship to pursue her undergraduate degree online at Southern New Hampshire University. This opportunity will enable Rodriguez to be the first college graduate in her family, which is very meaningful not only to her, but her parents as well - it's something she never thought could happen until now.

SNHU's philanthropic partnership with the LA Galaxy and Major League Soccer in deserving communities throughout North America is indicative of the belief the university has in the power of education to transform lives and its mission to provide affordable access to higher education for all.
