NBA superstar LeBron James may be moving on to the Los Angeles Lakers next season, but he's leaving behind an enduring legacy in his hometown of Akron, Ohio. On July 30, he officially opened the I Promise School, a new school and partnership with Akron Public Schools that will serve 240 local third and fourth graders with the most serious academic and life needs. The day before, James tweeted, "The jitters before the first day of school are real right now!!! Tomorrow is going to be one of the greatest moments (if not the greatest) of my life."
