Akron, Ohio’s own, Lebron James shows that his platform goes deeper than his mark made in the NBA.

James has created the I Promise school for at-risk skills and today was their first day of school in Akron, Ohio. The Lebron James Foundation and Akron Public Schools came together to make a school for students struggling academically and at home.
Bron has previously been helping with Akron for years and you can tell he’sfull of excitement with this life-changing.
Do you remember those first day jitters? Never knowing who you’ll meet, what you’ll see, but you can’t wait for it anyways?
The jitters before the first day of school are real right now!!! Tomorrow is going to be one of the greatest moments (if not the greatest) of my life when we open the #IPROMISE School. This skinny kid from Akron who missed 83 days of school in the 4th grade had big dreams… https://t.co/PwmRaHRfng

King James put his platform and wealth to use in the most positive way possible. Another chance for a young kid to not be a label or statistic.
