LeBron James To Open Akron Elementary School
The King is opening a school pretty soon in his small hometown of Akron. Reportedly the school board in LeBron James‘ Ohio hometown has approved the plan for a public school being created in partnership with the NBA star’s foundation, according to ESPN. The awesome part is the school is geared towards kids who struggle academically.
The LeBron James Family Foundation says the “I Promise” School in Akron will be geared toward educating students who are at risk of falling behind. It will have longer days and begin classes in the summer — weeks before other district schools — to encourage information retention.
Reportedly the school is scheduled to open next fall for third- and fourth-graders and Bron Bron’s team plans to add more grade levels in future years. How awesome.
