Ahwatukee Foothills News
The Ahwatukee Foothills News has been an integral part of the success for Mountainside Martial Arts.
Since 1979 Ahwatukee News Founder Clay Schad was dedicated to this community and worked effortlessly with every resident and business owner who contributed to the growth of each individual who resided in the Ahwatukee/Foothills Commuity.
His humanitarian devotion to Ahwatukee is evident.
We are so lucky to have this wonderful man give so much to our community and the growth to Mountainside Martial Arts.
We would not be here today with out his love and sincerity to our program.
Thank you Clay.
I was introduced to Mr. Michael Hiatt earlier this past year and the incredible energy he brings to our community.
Mountainside Martial Arts is excited to continue its 40- year relationship with the Ahwatukee Foothills News and the leadership Mr. Hiatt has instilled in a growing atmosphere. It is wonderful.
Thank you Michael for being a part of a great team at Times Media and your enthusiasm to propel us for another fantastic year.
A special thank you to Karen Mays who for the past 20 plus years assisted our program in advertising and marketing our dojo.
Her countless hours to our program and promote our students and families has been tremendous.
All of us here say, “Thank you to Karen and the devotion has given to all of us.
You are tremendous!
I was born in Lakewood Colorado. Got quite fed up with the snow and headed to sun and school where I graduated from Arizona State University. During college I worked as a lifeguard and swim instructor at the Ahwatukee Community Center under the Awe-inspiring direction of the one-and-only Rick Savagian. I still live in Ahwatukee with my French Bulldog Batman.
