Shane and Heidi Battier established The Battier Take Charge Foundation in January 2010 to encourage and inspire leadership qualities in young people. The Battierâ€™s believe that furthering education for at-risk students is crucial in the attempt to encourage young leaders who may not otherwise have the means to attend college. The Foundation serves to award scholarships to at-risk students who have proven themselves to be deserving young leaders.
