Kelly Rowland has teamed up with the Boys and Girls Club of America in light of their “Be Ready” initiative an effort which prepares students for the beginning of school in fall.
On August 4th the “motivational” singer was spotted wearing a royal blue cap and gown at the Boys and Girl’s Club s leading ‘Back-to-School Season’ kick-off event. During an apparence on NBC’s ‘The Today Show’ Rowland discussed her participation with the national organization:
“Last year more than a million students nationally failed to graduate with a high school diploma. For me, I just think about my god kids and I think about myself being a student and how hard it was as a kid. It’s not just about education. It’s just about being a kid, period, and knowing that there’s a huge world out here of opportunity. And I don’t want to see anybody miss out on an opportunity.”
S/O out to Ms. Rowland for motivating the kids!
