Linking Sports & Communities (LSC) was started in 2004. It was a program hosted by The Leadership Consortium. “Our original mission,” says Founder Denise Meridith, “Was to enhance the relationships among athletes, sports organizations and the communities in Arizona.” One way of accomplishing that has been working with all the professional sports to encourage student athletes to stay in school, lead healthy lifestyles and be financially responsible.
