Steelers RB Le’Veon Bell Donates $750K To His High School Alma Mater
Offseason part-time rapper and full-time Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le’Veon Bell took some time out recently to drop some good fortune by giving his old high school a massive donation.
Groveport Madison High School in Ohio received a $750K check from the all-pro running back for turf installation on the school’s football field.
“This is an incredible gift to the Groveport Madison Schools community,” Groveport Madison Superintendent Bruce Hoover said, per Chad Conant of ABC6. “Le’Veon and his mother, Lisa, give credit to many people at GMHS, most particularly to coach Bryan Schoonover, for helping Le’Veon during his high school years.
“This gift speaks to the power of strong, trusting relationships between our students and staff. It also demonstrates the power and connection between our schools and our alumni—and what it means to be a Cruiser.”
To show their gratitude, the school will rename the Cruiser Stadium field, “Le’Veon Bell Field”.
