Jordan Coppert, a senior and star athlete at Faith Lutheran High School, doesn’t take for granted the positive role sports have played in his life. After realizing many of his peers were missing out because of the high cost of sports equipment, Jordan was determined to make a difference. He started out by collecting gently used equipment from his church and school. His efforts grew into a community-wide program called Faith-Fuls, which provides low-cost gear to underprivileged youth in Southern Nevada. This year, Jordan partnered up with Under-Armor to distribute $12,000 worth of new sports gear through Faith Community Day. Jordan is passionate about what he is doing and is committed to continuing this program even after he graduates.
