Slam-Dunk Honor in Akron

Earlier this month, the Greater Akron Chamber of Commerce enjoyed some celebrity sizzle during its annual meeting banquet when it honored Cleveland Cavaliers basketball star LeBron James. James, a four-time NBA MVP, attended the event to accept the H. Peter Burg Leadership Award, recognizing his leadership and philanthropic efforts in Akron. The award annually honors a community member who exemplifies community service.

According to the Akron Beacon Journal/Ohio.com, the LeBron James Family Foundation "has awarded millions of dollars — from books to bikes, computers to basketball courts — to groups around Akron and the nation."
 
An article on cleveland.com said the "Foundation's biggest project in Akron has been its I Promise program, which has encouraged 700 Akron public school students to pledge to do their homework and listen to teachers and parents."
