Braylon Edwards, wide-receiver for the Cleveland Browns, announced a $1 Million scholarship donation to 100 8th graders in the Cleveland area that will pay for them to go to college. That's $10,000 per lucky student.
The story points out that the funding will also pay for tutoring and mentoring; it's clear that Braylon Edwards and his foundation also "gets it" when it comes to the importance of supplemental education. It's too bad our company is not yet in the Cleveland area, because we'd love to work with his foundation to provide quality, low cost tutoring and mentoring.
I love reading positive stories, especially when athletes give back to their communities.
