Bell’s funding will go toward installing turf at the school’s football stadium.
The running back graduated in 2010, then enrolled at Michigan State.
“This is an incredible gift to the Groveport Madison Schools community,” superintendent Bruce Hoover said to ABC 6. “Le’Veon and his mother, Lisa, give credit to many people at GMHS, most particularly to coach Bryan Schoonover, for helping Le’Veon during his high school years. This gift speaks to the power of strong, trusting relationships between our students and staff. It also demonstrates the power and connection between our schools and our alumni – and what it means to be a Cruiser.”
Groveport Madison will be renaming Cruiser Stadium to Le’Veon Bell Field as a result of his donation.
