Laveen is once again the recipient of a grant from the Arizona Sports and Tourism Authority (AZSTA). The district is one of 31 organizations from around the state that received an AZSTA grant in its latest round of awards to organizations that promote youth and amateur sports programs.

AZSTA will be providing $250,000 in lighting to the David Glasser Athletic Complex soccer/football fields.

Dr. Joe Roselle, community engagement coordinator; Kevin Hegarty, chief financial officer; and Robert Jacobson, support services director, prepared the extensive grant application.

The district previously received $185,000 from the organization in 2017 for the athletic complex project.
