Rajon Rondo, Glen Davis Visit Thomas Edison Middle School to Promote Celtics”Stay in School’ Program


Dec 15, 2009

The Celtics have three days off before their next game on Friday night against the 76ers. How did they spend Tuesday?

Rajon Rondo and Glen Davis spent it at the Thomas Edison Middle School in Brighton, Mass., taking part in Tuesday’s “Stay in School” assembly to honor high-achieving students and encourage all of the young academics to take pride in their classroom work.

“My teammates and I enjoyed talking with the students about getting the most out of their education,” Rondo said. “By working hard and trying their best in the classroom, these children can accomplish anything.”

The Celtics use a special acronym to help remind students to take PRIDE in their schoolwork: P for perseverance, R for respect, I for integrity, D for decisions and E for education.

Tuesday’s event kicked off the 19th season of the Celtics’ “Stay in School” program, which allows various players to visit schools to help motivate students. At the end of the year, top students will be honored for perfect attendance and academic achievement.
