AKRON, OH (WOIO) –
The LeBron James Family Foundation will fulfill the final component of LeBron James’ commitment to his high school, St. Vincent – St. Mary in Akron, by debuting the brand new Nike spring sports uniforms.
STVM’s baseball, softball, and men’s tennis teams will receive the fitted uniforms during a movie night at a local cinema including a special screening of the inspirational movie “The Blind Side.”
In all, LeBron and his Foundation donated more than $200,000 in team uniforms and coaches shirts to fulfill James’ promise.
“I’m excited to be in a position to help my alma mater become one of the best-dressed high schools in the country,” said James, STVM class of 2003. “I’ve always said that when you look good, you feel good. When you feel good, you play great and that’s what Irish pride is all about.”

2. St. Louis Blues, 1929 RKO/Sack Amusements FREE Screening (one of several shorts), Feb. 26th, 7:30pm, Rock Hall - This sixteen-minute short film shot in Astoria, Queens, New York City, is blues singer Bessie Smith’s only screen role. In it, she plays a long-suffering wife of an uncaring gambler. Co-produced by W.C. Handy, author of the title song, the film also features Isabelle Washington (sister of actress Fredi Washington) who plays the “other woman.” Pianist James P. Johnson and the Hall Johnson Choir accompanied Smith and added to the overwhelming pathos of her singing, making this dramatized interpretation of the blues a true film classic.2 of 6
