Donald Driver’s Surprise Visit to Jeremiah Curtin Leadership Academy

  1. Updates

Retired NFL wide receiver Donald Driver made a surprise visit to Curtin Academy September 24 to discuss anti-bully efforts in Milwaukee Public Schools. Playworks was excited to have our own Coach Laurie emcee the event – we can now say number 80 can pass along some "Milkshake cheer" moves to his fellow Green Bay Packers.

Thanks to Children's Hospital of Wisconsin for their efforts in highlighting this issue in our community. Playworks is glad to be part of the fight against bullying!
