I couldn’t be more excited to return home to Lansing this month and support the work of Lansing Promise. Since 2012, Lansing Promise has been able to provide more than a half million dollars in scholarship support to hundreds of deserving students in the Lansing School District. These efforts are helping build better lives for students in the Lansing School District and are critical in providing students a head start in life beyond high school.
The education that I received at Main Street Elementary, Dwight Rich Junior High, and Everett High School was an important factor in my ability to succeed. My teachers and mentors helped me to achieve success in athletics and in business. It’s my hope that more young people in Lansing will have similar opportunities to get ahead in life. Lansing Promise offers them that hope!
Please join me at a Special Evening with “Magic” on Thursday, April 30 from 5:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. at the Lansing Center. Following dinner, I will speak on the importance of education to succeed in business and in life. Proceeds will benefit the Lansing Promise Scholarship program.
For more information on the event, visit www.lansingchamber.org. This special evening is an event you don’t want to miss!
I look forward to seeing you on April 30.
Earvin “Magic” Johnson
