Kevin Durant commits $10 million to Prince George’s County public schools
Kevin Durant continues to give back to the community that raised him.
Durant, who calls Prince George’s County, MD., home, recently announced a partnership with Prince George’s County public schools.
The partnership, which comes with a $10 million dollar commitment from Durant, will help fund a program called College Track. Essentially, it’s a 10-year program that provides basic infrastructure — test prep, tutoring, college selection and how to get financial aid — that kids from less-advantaged families often times don’t have.
Durant’s money will go towards building College Track’s Maryland center. There are nine other College Tracks across California, Colorado, and Louisiana, and the program has helped over 3,000 students get to college and beyond. This Maryland center will be the first of three that are planned to go up in the DC area.
