Once in a lifetime experience for some IDEA Carver students (and my kids!)

I was invited by San Antonio Charter Moms to drop in at Academy Sports + Outdoor to watch IDEA Carver students meet and shop with David Robinson for some San Antonio Spurs gear! Academy Sports provided each of the chosen 30 students with a $50 gift card to shop with Robinson. Before heading out for their shopping spree he spoke to the students about his two children that attend college; one at the University of Texas and the other at the University of Notre Dame. Then he rallied the kids to help cheer on the SPURS for their next game in the NBA Finals. Finally the kids lined up for a picture with Robinson then ventured out around the store with Academy Sports team members to help find their very own Spurs gear to support our cities beloved team!

Here he is talking to the students.


Even my kids jumped at the chance to get a picture with this basketball star! (This is my son and littlest brother who will be going to IDEA South Flores next fall.)

What a great once in a lifetime experience for these students (and my family) to meet Robinson.

BTW: He is INCREDIBLY NICE and soooo tall in person!! My kids made us drive around the parking lot looking for a very tall car.

  1. Lori, I’m so glad you all could come. David Robinson was so great with the kids — he really got the message across about the importance of getting ready for college.

    Go Spurs Go!
