The true meaning of being a king is that they must not only exemplify leadership over themselves but also for those people in their kingdom. These leadership capabilities are to be used to make a better situation for all of the kings’ people.
The king here? King James.
The kingdom? Akron, Ohio.
It was just announced that through his “I Promise” project, Lebron will be sending over 1000 students from his hometown to college.
According to ESPN.com
“The NBA star has partnered with the University of Akron to provide a guaranteed four-year scholarship to the school for students in James’ I Promise program who qualify.”
Sports enthusiasts will always go back and forth, comparing James on whether he’s really a king or not on the court… But in life, we all know there’s really no comparison to his actions.
Congratulations King James on all of your success and a special congratulations to your mother for raising such a humble man!
