Last week three-time NBA Champion LeBron James finally opened his I Promise School in his hometown of Akon Ohio.  The elementary will address at-risk kids. The grade levels will start at second grade through fourth and plan to expand in the future. Again, it will target and educate students from challenging backgrounds.

 

LeBron will donate millions of dollars along with sponsors to support the school. Also, school hours will be longer than traditional elementary hours. There will be 40 plus staff members that will be focused on making sure students get the proper attention. Students that graduate will have a full scholarship to the University of Akron starting in 2021. They will also offer parents of at-risk children to go back to high school and complete their high school education.  James also wants to help prepare high school students for college.

All-Star Elena Delle Donne offered her thoughts regarding James opening the I Promise School.

It’s amazing! Love to see players of his caliber giving back the way he does and continuing to give back to his community. It’s awesome and I wish I was a little kid and go back to that school because it looks incredible. He is doing some much great things in the community and he inspires others to do the same! Donne told me.
