James opens Akron ‘I Promise’ school
LeBron James is moving away from home again but he’s leaving behind a school in his hometown as part of his legacy. He says this will be “one of the greatest moments — if not the greatest — of my life.” The NBA great is opening a public school for challenged children in his hometown of Akron. The ‘I Promise School’ will initially house 240 third- and fourth-graders before expanding. The school will offer free post-secondary education to graduates in a partnership with a local university. James is to be at the school Monday to welcome students. He will be making his first public comments since deciding to leave the Cleveland Cavaliers in favour of the Los Angeles Lakers.
