Education is one of the pillars of the Cleveland Cavaliers’ community efforts and as part of that, the organization recognizes exemplary teachers and students throughout Northeast Ohio. Each month during the regular season, the Cavs select one teacher and one student to receive the team’s Head of the Class and All-Star Kids awards, respectively.
Head of the Class recognizes teachers in Northeast Ohio that make a difference in their students’ lives both inside and outside of the classroom. December’s winner was Robert Williams, the K-8 school principal at Cleveland Preparatory Academy, where students have drastically improved their test scores since he began. Mr. Williams plans fun family events for the school and created new sports teams there. He is very popular amongst students.
Mr. Williams was treated to a visit from Cavs in-arena host Ahmaad and members of the Scream Team, who presented him with a $500.00 donation to use towards his school. Mr. Williams also received tickets and passes for complimentary food and beverage in the Westfield Champions Club to the December 3rd Cavs game, where he was honored at center court.
All-Star Kids recognizes students who set a positive example for their peers. December’s winner was Dominic Perusko, a first grader at Grant Elementary in Willoughby, where he shows academic excellence in all subject areas. Dominic makes good choices and others follow his positive examples. He is always willing to help his classmates and goes out of his way to include other students in everything.
Ahmaad and the Scream Team surprised Dominic at school to present him with tickets and passes for complimentary food and beverage in the Westfield Champions Club to the Cavs game on December 6th, where he was honored at center court. He will also receive a pizza party for his class at a later date.
