Pitbull Participates in Nevada-Based SLAM! Charter School Opening

Pitbull is ready for an educational grand Slam!

The 34-year-old Cuban American rap superstar is lending his image to opening a second SLAM! charter school, this time near Las Vegas.


Pitbull, whose full name is Armando Christian Perez, attended a groundbreaking ceremony Friday in Henderson, Nevada, for the Sports Leadership and Management Academy.

The school for students hoping for careers in sports medicine, marketing, business and management is expected to open in time for the 2016 school year. Only students in grades six through nine will be eligible initially before the school expects to grow to an enrollment of 1,650 students in grades six through 12.

Pitbull was also involved when the first SLAM! school opened in Miami in 2013.

The rapper is a celebrity ambassador for the schools overseen by the SLAM Foundation. He is not a financial donor.
