Magic Johnson Pledges $250K To Aid Flint Schools

Iconic NBA player Earvin “Magic” Johnson has pledged to aid Flint, Michigan schools in a huge way. The former Lakers star spoke at Flint Northwestern High School reports MLIVE:

“We want you to understand dream big. Get your education and you’ll be able to do anything in life you want to do,” he said. “I was once just like you. A little kid from Lansing, Michigan right down the street. I grew up poor, but I didn’t have poor dreams.”

He pledged $250,000 toward Flint Community schools during a September visit that will be used to establish three walk-in clinics within the district and athletic facility improvements and told people he would return to the community.
