    LeBron James is now trying to help Akron adults get their GEDs by using the same basic principles his charitable foundation designed to help children stay in school and graduate.

    Under a new partnership announced Thursday with Project Learn of Summit County, which exists to help adults get their GEDs, parents of the children enrolled in the LeBron James Family Foundation's scholastic mentorship program can get financial and emotional support to obtain high school equivalency credentials and learn other life skills.

    I most definitely have to give props to this amazing brother who is willing to help with his time, money and self. He and others are setting the standard for those who want to make something of themselves. I'm surprised but then again not that there wouldn't be more traffic on this thread. Good thread JamesfrmPhilly..

    My sentiments exactly brother Chuck. We have become to focused on the negative and need to push for and highlight more of the positive. The pollution process has been in full effect for much too long and it is now time for the sanitation process to begin...I feel ya!!!
