Tom Smart, Deseret News
WEST VALLEY CITY — Young basketball players got their kicks in more ways than one at American Preparatory Academy on Thursday.
The refugee children received new shoes made possible by a grant and then took to the court to work on their basketball skills in a clinic put on by Alta High School sophomore Jonathan Diener.
Diener organized Hoops 4 Bright Futures, a series of basketball clinics to help refugees, and received a $2,500 grant from Select Health to purchase the sneakers for the kids.
