Well, King James is taking the love one step further, announcing that he will fund over 1,000 kids’ educations with a scholarship to the University of Akron, ESPN reported.
Through a partnership between the school and his LeBron James Family Foundation, the 1,100 children currently in his “I Promise” program will receive a fully sponsored scholarship. “I think it’s probably one of the best things I’ve ever been a part of,” James said.
He continued, “This is very special to me. As a kid growing up in the inner city and as an African-American kid, you don’t really think past high school because it’s not possible or your family can’t support you.”
