It may be summer for kids across Northeast Ohio, but it’s also a chance for a group of students in the LeBron James Family Foundation (LJFF) to prepare for their first year in high school.
“I’m a high schooler now,” said Miah Massey.
Massey, entering 9th grade at East High School, will be beginning a new journey in the fall of 2017. She’s part of the LJFF’s I Promise program.
“You know that you’re getting a full ride to scholarship, so it makes you want to do better in everything that you do.”
Massey and about 200 others are part of the first class of LJFF students. If the students meet a certain set of requirements and graduate from Akron Public Schools, they will be among the first students to receive a scholarship to the University of Akron
