Saginaw’s Lamarr Woodley Donates Money To End ‘Pay To Play’ In Saginaw [Video]
Lamarr Woodley has never forgotten where he came from, and is probably one of Saginaw’s best representatives.
He showed that again this week as he donated $60,000 to the Saginaw school system to wipe out the new ‘pay to play’ policy.
The Saginaw School District, for the first time in its history, is instituting a “pay-for-participation” program that would require high school students will pay $75 per sport and middle school students will pay $50 dollars per sport.The district did set limits as they won’t charge more than $75 dollars per student and no more than $250 per family.
Woodley’s donation will cover the cost, so that every student who wants to take part in sports will be able to do so for free!
Lamarr is far from done though, this Friday is the deadline to sign up for a special event being put on by Woodley this Aug. 29. There will be free haircuts, food, beverages and entertainment at the “Think Big, Dream Big, Live Big event at the civic recreation center on Second Avenue behind the Dow Event Center.
Club 93.7 salutes Lamarr Woodley! Thank you for being such a great role model.
