Magic Johnson/Gary School Corp Reveal A Gary Promise

NBA Hall of Famer Earvin “Magic” Johnson was in Gary on Monday night speaking on an initiative to provide scholarship opportunities for students that fulfill Indiana Core requirements. Johnson and the Gary School Corporation have teamed for “A Gary Promise” which will also support mentoring and enrichment programs, student development training and career awareness projects for all grades, with the ultimate goal to accomplish a 100 percent graduation rate.

The Times reports Johnson briefly commented on the current controversy surrounding alleged racists comments made by L-A Clippers owner Donald Sterling by stating simply, “there is no room for discrimination.” On Sunday, Johnson said Sterling should not own a team anymore. The NBA is scheduled to make an announcement into its investigation today.
