Lebron James' Public School Opens in Akron
The I Promise School has officially opened in Akron, Ohio. The school was created as an extension of the Lebron James Family Foundation to give at risk students the chance to succeed despite difficult situations they may be facing. The school currently educates 240 students. The schools Principal says; “I think the missing link in public education is that family wraparound support,” “Because our students come to school and they’re worried about things at home. … We want to create that safe, that secure and that caring and loving environment for our families and our students so that our kids can focus on education.” Its truly great to see an athlete like Lebron giving back in a very real way.
