Posted on 04/25/2019

With Akron Public Schools on spring break, two dozen of LeBron’s ninth-graders made the journey to Canton to take in the history and accomplishments that fill the awe-inspiring site. As their reflections radiated off the glass and golden trophies, for a moment they could envision themselves as champions. And as they made their way through the historical hallways, holding authentic Super Bowl rings, trying on the famed golden jacket and taking in all the history and hard work the halls had to offer, our Hall of Family outing inspired a new generation of even bigger dreams.

Also on this experience outing, the ninth-graders got a sneak peek at the Hall of Fame's future expansion plans, with designs to be the ‘The Most Inspiring Place on Earth.’ And on this day, as his kids watched their promises interspersed with some of the most famous hall of fame inductee speeches of all time, it lived up to its billing.

Our family of partners go above and beyond to
make these outings an experience our students will
never forget.

Adding a layer of learning to the Foundation’s monthly experience outings for every grade level is the inclusion of 330 Ambassadors on each visit. Designed to aid our high school mentors in their college and career pursuits, those with an interest in each particular field are now joining the outings to capitalize on the rare and valuable opportunities for networking and first-hand insights offered in every industry.

This week also saw LeBron’s 10th-grade students head to Crystal Clinic for a day of career exploration in the medical field. The first-ever “Health Heroes” experience outing saw LeBron’s original I PROMISE class learn about jobs in pharmaceuticals, radiology, cyber security, physical and occupational therapy, and even how to handle the many tools and techniques of the O.R. With the Crystal Clinic staff on hand at every station, the true health heroes inspired a whole new crew of future medical professionals.

Our family of partners go above and beyond to make these outings an experience our students will never forget. Through their generosity with their time, care and expertise, they are igniting dreams LeBron’s students never even knew were possible.
