LeBron James Gets Board Approval to Open Public School in Akron

On Tuesday, Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James’ vision of opening a new public school for at-risk children in Akron, Ohio took a big step forward.

James finally received the approval from the school board!

In partnership with Akron Public Schools, the LeBron James Family Foundation is set to open the “I Promise” school, which is set to open next fall with the objective of aiding educate third and fourth grade students who are at risk of falling behind in their studies.

”This school is so important to me because our vision is to create a place for the kids in Akron who need it most – those that could fall through the cracks if we don’t do something,” James said back in April. “We’ve learned over the years what works and what motivates them, and now we can bring all of that together in one place along with the right resources and experts. If we get to them early enough, we can hopefully keep them on the right track to a bigger and brighter future for themselves and their families.”

No matter how hectic his life may be on the basketball court, James continues to do everything in his power to give back to the community.
