Utah Jazz, Mark Miller Subaru to Unveil New Computer Lab in Taylorsville on Nov. 11

Nearly $30,000 has been donated to renovate a computer lab and purchase the Renaissance 2.0 Language Lab System with 36 stations for students at West Lake STEM where 25 different languages are spoken among its Multi-Language Learner students. Many students have the challenges of living in a new country, understanding an unfamiliar language, and adjusting to new expectations. The new school equipment and language lab will fast-track language acquisition in the areas of reading, writing, listening, and speaking, especially given that approximately 70 percent of West Lake STEM students study English as a second language.

“Mark Miller Subaru is proud of our long-time partnership with the Utah Jazz and are truly honored to be standing alongside them in making this meaningful financial contribution to West Lake Jr. High School,” said Jeff Miller, owner of Mark Miller Subaru. “It is our hope that this investment for advanced classroom technology will help English Language Learners at West Lake Junior High while simultaneously connecting students from various backgrounds and cultures to one another in both a powerful and life-changing manner.” 

Both the Jazz and Mark Miller Subaru support education as one of their community pillars. The organizations have jointly adopted West Lake STEM and will bring three more activations to the school during the 2022-23 Jazz season.
