Back to School Success Program
Sadly across America there are many students who start their first day of school without the basic necessities needed to earn the education they deserve. The thought of having their own backpack or notebook on the first day of school is unlikely. This school year, help the Randy Foye Foundation as we seek to provide as many students as possible with the basic tools needed to supplement education.This is our fifth year running this initiative. Monetary donations will be used to purchase school supplies in bulk. If you would like to purchase school supplies you may drop them off at our office. We are requesting the following items: backpacks, notebooks, pens, pencils, folders, composition books, one inch binders and filler paper). To donate online, visit randyfoye.org or click here to be taken directly to the donation form.
“Your future is bright,” Randy told 8th grade graduates from Dr. E. Alma Flagg School in Newark, NJ at their commencement in late June. “Never let anyone tell you any different.” He then watched proudly as Erika, a member of the Assist 4 Life program, delivered her address as class valedictorian.
Randy Signs with Denver Nuggets
At a press conference on July 11th, the Denver Nuggets introduced one of the newest members of their squad and a basketball player who will do whatever it takes to win.
“Randy is one of the most dangerous 3-point shooters in the game today,” Connelly said. “He addresses a major need for us on the perimeter, and he will also provide great veteran leadership for our young players.”
Randy averaged 10.8 points and 2.0 assists while making a franchise-record 178 3-pointers for the Jazz last season. He was one of only five NBA players to shoot better than .400 from 3-point range while taking at least 400 attempts. Drafted seventh overall by Minnesota in 2006, he has averaged 11.5 points, 3.0 assists and 2.2 rebounds in seven NBA seasons. He is a career .377 shooter from long range and is also one of the league’s most accurate free-throw shooters, converting 85.6 percent of his foul shots.

Foye Has Record Setting Season for Jazz
The Jazz finished the regular season 43-39, just missing this year’s playoffs.Randy quickly established himself as a lethal shooting threat, earning the nickname “En Foyego” from the Jazz faithful.He averaged in double figures in scoring for the 6th season in his 7-year NBA career, appearing in all 82 games as a regular starter for the Jazz
Randy shot 41% from 3-point range this season, tying his career best performance from three (also shot 41% during the 2007-2008 season).That year, he attempted a total of 148 3-pointers.This season, he made 178 three’s, setting a new Utah Jazz franchise record.He broke the previous record on March 1st vs. Bobcats, connecting on his 130th 3-pointer of the season. In a March 30th contest vs. the Nets, Randy broke the record for number of 3-pointers made in a half by a Jazz player with 7; tied the franchise record for three’s made in a game with 8; and tied his own career high for three’s made in a game (also 8). His performance was sensational as he shot 82% overall from the floor in that game, and a blistering 89% from 3-point range.
Assist 4 Life Update
The students in the Assist 4 Life program have been working hard this year in addition to enjoying some unique experiences. They have applied Randy’s life story to their own lives and learned from his example. At the beginning of the year, each student completed a goal mapping exercise in which they identified several top goals that they want to achieve by the end of this school year, and several top goals that they want to achieve in their lifetime. Each student was presented with a framed copy of their goals to serve as a daily reminder of what they envision for themselves.
Students gained further knowledge of reading comprehension as well as belief in self by analyzing news articles in which Foye was quoted throughout the season. Students also participated in an in-depth discussion of Black History Month by studying biographies of famous individuals and applying those lessons to today’s world. Students created their own business plan for both an animal shelter and a retail store. They also analyzed music lyrics for content, comprehension and language patterns.
The Assist 4 Life students were particularly interested in the lesson encompassing John Wooden’s Pyramid of Success. Each student received a copy of the famous coach’s book, “Wooden,” and together dissected the pyramid layer by layer, as well as the coach’s life lessons. They watched President Barack Obama inaugurated for a second term, and learned about famous historical figures during Women’s History Month. Students also shared opinions during discussions about current events that impact their lives. This prompted an analysis of the branches of our government and the elected officials who represent their voice from local to national levels.
The Assist 4 Life students have individually made enormous strides toward reaching their full potential in life. This group, our 5th class of students, has demonstrated through their behavior the understanding of important values including: maintaining a positive attitude, good friendships and relationships, success vs. failure, persevering through obstacles and how to be a person of character.
