LITTLE ROCK, Ark., Sept. 20, 2011—The members of Rainwater, Holt & Sexton are pleased to recognize Steve Snider, co-founder of Life CHAMPS® sports league, for his dedication to being a positive role model for young athletes. As the latest honoree of the The Ripple Effect program, Steve Snider uses athletics to teach young people good sportsmanship and the importance of having a strong character.
“Each day we’re given the opportunity to write our own story and see how we will encourage, lead, and influence in a way that blesses others and makes a difference,” said Snider, who reinforces these life lessons to players, coaches, referees, and parents. “I love encouraging kids and inspiring them to become positive influences and live to help others. Encouragement, strong character, and good sportsmanship are the foundation to help kids become lifelong champions and leaders who will bring positive change to the world.”
