Who will be paying for some seniors’ college application fees next year? The “Answer” is Reebok.
Former NBA player Allen Iverson presented a gift to students at his alma mater, Bethel High School, via Reebok. According to Complex, sneaker giant will cover all college application fees to celebrate the latest Reebok “Origins” pack that features two signature Allen Iverson sneakers.
Reebok is covering college application costs for approximately 400 students for Bethel High’s 2021 senior class. “Nothing should limit you from applying to any school you want to consider,” Iverson said via video. “By working with Reebok to cover the application costs of rising seniors at Bethel High, I want the next generation of game-changers to see college as a route to success, whether they want to be an artist or a doctor.”
The students will also receive sneakers.
