FullSizeRenderThanks to a partnership with the L.A. Dodgers Foundation, 100 Partnership Scholars, mentors and family spent Friday, June 3 watching the Dodgers beat the Atlanta Braves!

We were there for Dre Dayz, an event that L.A. Dodger Andre Ethier supports. Another benefit of this partnership, PSP scholars got to be featured on the big screen over the ballpark!

The Foundation provided a special treat to some of PSP’s highest achieving students. Students who earned a 4.0 or better on their report cards were invited for a special evening in a VIP suite at the stadium. The L.A. Dodgers Foundation gave these students new sneakers and Dodger gear and they got to tour the stadium and go down on the field!

As the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation Executive Director Nichol Whiteman said, “Supporting motivated students like these is one of the most important steps we can take to ensure the health of our city. We see the potential in these students and a model that focuses on both school and culture provides. These young students will grow up to be the well-rounded men and women who will move this county forward.”  

The Dodgers provided another group of scholars and mentors with busses to take them to and from the game, along with Dodgers t-shirts and food vouchers so they could enjoy their Dodger dogs.
