This week Carmelo Anthony was in his hometown, Baltimore, MD, for a preseason game against the Wizards. During his time there he and teammate Iman Shumpert stopped by the Carmelo Anthony Youth development center, where 15 students of the month were rewarded with tickets to the game.
Anthony gave each student 2 tickets … handing out 30 total … but he didn’t forget about the non-Students of the Month. We’re told he handed out t-shirts to everyone. And they all had a blast.
Very admirable of Anthony to do this. It’s always important to reward a young child’s commitment to doing well in school.
