Browns cornerback Carrie inspired by James’ school in Akron

Lakers' Le Bron James at NBA Summer League

All the students attending the I Promise School are under-performing in reading, math and other essential academic areas. Tomorrow is going to be one of the greatest moments (if not the greatest) of my life when we open the #IPROMISE School.

"There's no reason you should become a Laker, became a Yankee, become part of Man U (Manchester United), become part of some franchise or clubs and you don't think about winning championships or winning at the highest level", James said. With regard to the gross earnings for the 2017 basketball player had won with 85.5 million in USA currency and takes the sixth place in the ranking of the highest paid athletes in the world. "I know these kids basically more than they know themselves".

The "I Promise School" will give underperforming students the opportunity to excel in hands-on learning environments, as well as a scholarship to college.

"I want people to know that these kids still have the same opportunities as everyone else, and that's what's important", James said.

As part of the event, James is planning a news conference, at which he will publicly discuss for the first time his decision to sign with the Los Angeles Lakers. Through the school, James has touched many lives, including that of Smith, who was obviously moved by his former teammate's project.

LeBron recalls in a tweet that, as a kid, he once missed 83 days of school when he was in the fourth grade.

The school will provide students who live more than two miles away from campus with daily bus transportation, according to the statement. By 2022, the school will expand to first- through eighth-grades. "Why not continue to do great things when you can help the youth".

Outside of just the education the students will receive at the "I Promise School", it's also important to James that these students have a strong support space for them to turn to, something he found invaluable, himself, growing up. "So after talking to my family more than anybody, I felt like this was the next step in my journey".

Although James is leaving after his second stint with the Cavaliers, Carrie believes his work in OH remains.
