WHO WE ARE
Strong academics. Stellar athletics.
The paths toward excellence in education and sports need not be separate ones. Students who take part in the new Inner City Educational (ICE) League in Muncie are joining a league specifically designed to motivate participants to be strong student athletes as they move toward high school and post-secondary education.
Utilize sports and other activities to connect students and their parents to positive educational, healthy living and career pathway opportunities.
The ICE League sets the grade point average bar at 2.5 and higher for students who wish to fully participate in the basketball league for 7th- and 8th-grade boys and 6th – 8th-grade girls in Muncie Community Schools. A partnership with the school system and permission by students’ parents is allowing the League to monitor student GPA progress before the February draft and during the February/March playing season. There will be some opportunity for game play for students who are reaching toward the 2.5 GPA standard.
Project Leadership recognizes the importance of education and the vital role it plays in a community’s well-being. To that end, Project Leadership creates and accelerates Delaware County and regional initiatives and programs that promote educational attainment and degree completion. It strives to improve quality of life and the economic health of communities, ensuring low-income students achieve an education with value in the marketplace through college access/completion.
