Chicago Hometown Boy Makes Good

I met current NBA star, Juwan Howard earlier tonight. It was at an appreciation reception for the supporters of the Chicago Public Schools-Juwan Howard Foundation Literacy Challenge & Celebrity Basketball Camp. The Michigan Alumni Club of Greater Chicago is one of the sponsors, so that’s how I got the invite. And let me say that as a fellow Michigan graduate like Juwan, I felt proud. So many professional athletes, talk about giving back to their community but very few go as far as Juwan has. What I like too is that while the reward for the kids is getting to go to the basketball camp, to qualify, they have to read a certain number of books — which I’m sure, will go a lot way towards making them better students. So way to go Juwan!!
