NBA Player Kevin Love Teaches JKL Students That “Dreams Don’t Have Deadlines”

As we all adjust to the new social distancing norms, we’ve been hosting regular Zoom calls to check-in on our students and faculty, and we’re excited to share that one of our most special calls included five-time NBA All-Star Kevin Love of the Cleveland Cavaliers!

During a Zoom session with our Cleveland just keep livin students and teachers, Love shared words of inspiration and encouragement. An especially touching moment came when he shared his list of “160 dreams”, telling our students that “dreams don’t have deadlines” and sharing with them the importance of “falling in love with the journey” of creating goals! Love’s words motivated our students on every level, inspiring them to “attack each day” while also focusing on maintaining balance.

We LOVE working with the Kevin Love Fund and are so grateful his foundation sponsors the JKL program at John Adams High School. Thank you again to Kevin Love for sharing his knowledge with our JKL kids, and for working so hard to empower our youth by removing the stigma from mental health issues, especially during these challenging and uncertain times!
