NBA star, LeBron James has reportedly donated an unprecedented $41 million to put 1,100 Ohio kids through college. FORTY ONE MILLION!
The remarkable offering is part of his partnership with the University Of Akron, in which kids enrolled in his “I Promise” program will have the opportunity to receive a fully guaranteed four-year college scholarship.
Students enrolled in the program will need to first graduate high school within Akron’s public school system and achieve standard testing requirements, as well as fulfill some sort of community service obligation- which students will gladly do for a free ride to college.
“It’s the reason I do what I do. These students have big dreams, and I’m happy to do everything I can to help them get there. They’re going to have to earn it, but I’m excited to see what these kids can accomplish knowing that college is in their futures.” – LeBron James
