Lebron James Opens Public Schools For Akron Kids

Giving back in a MAJOR way!! Lebron has teamed with schools in Akron to open the "I Promise School" in hopes of helping the youth in his hometown. The school will officially open its doors in 2018. The focus starting out will be 3rd and 4th graders and by 2022 it will accommodate grades 1-8.

 

“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.
