Lakers legend Earvin “Magic” Johnson has been chosen to be the keynote speaker for this year’s Cuyahoga Community College Foundation’s Presidential Scholarship Luncheon that is set to take place on October 8th this fall. The luncheon has raised more than $15 million dollars since 1992 to help Tri-C students in the area and is likely to have a great turnout this year. The event itself starts at 11:30 a.m. and will take place at the Renaissance Cleveland Hotel in Cleveland, Ohio and will surely appeal to all of the Laker fans in the area. Johnson will have a lot of insight and experience to share along with an extremely inspiring message to really set the tone of the whole luncheon.
The basketball legend attended Michigan State University from 1977-1979 when he dropped out to enter the 1979 NBA Draft where he was selected as the first overall pick. He was hired on by the Los Angeles Lakers with whom he stayed loyal to throughout his career that went from 1979-1996 as a player, with a one year stint as the coach in 1994. Johnson is one of the only “Triple Crown” basketball players in the history of the NBA who has won an NCAA Championship, NBA Championship, and an Olympic Gold Medal, which he did when he was a part of the famous Dream Team representing the United States.
The former point guard will be going to Ohio this October to speak for the Cuyahoga Community College’s scholarship luncheon and he is going to be able to bring in a huge crowd from near and far, which will be great for the organization. Even those who aren’t too knowledgeable in the sport will likely be familiar with Johnson since he has been a icon of American culture for a number of years now.
