One is from Chicago’s south side, the daughter of a city pump operator. The other was raised by a single mother, who b ounced around Akron l ooking for a better life f or her talented son. But as they stood side-by-side Wednesday, Michelle Obama and Le- Bron James were proof to kids that dreams do come true. “If we can be here,” the first lady said as she addressed a crowd of school kids and their parents, “we know you can be here, too.” The NBA’s biggest s tar, James appeared with Obama at an event to celebrate the importance of education and to challenge thousands of children in the LeBron James Family Foundation programs to finish college. A fter the crowd of approximately 2,500 w atched videos explaining the importance of a earning a college degree, James and Obama t ook the stage together inside the University of Akron’s Rhodes Arena, a venue where the four- time league MVP played m any times while in high s chool. Obama pointed out to the children and their parents that she and James were from hum- b le beginnings. “ We don’t come from places where families had a lot of money or a lot of resources,” she said. Obama then turned t oward James, who wore a blue T-shirt with “We Are Family” — one of his foundation’s slogans — on the front and reminded the kids that he was o nce one of them. “LeBron is investing so much in you guys because h e knows that you’re w orth it,” she said. During the summer, James announced a partnership with the university to provide free four- y ear educations to city s tudents who qualify. Obama praised James for those efforts and reminded the kids they are being given a unique opportuni- t y. “It’s on you,” she said. “You’ve got college paid f or. Are you going to do the w ork to get there?” The crowd erupted with a resounding “Yes.” Before hearing Obama and James speak, Mike D arke sat in the stands a long with his 8-year-old son, Ethan, who could hardly sit still as he waited for the Cavaliers’ All-Star to take the stage. Ethan is i n his first year in James’ “Wheels For Education” program, an initiative designed to motivate and inspire kids to stay in school and reach their goals. Darke said James’ college promise is a blessing f or many families. “That was probably the b est thing I have ever heard in my life,” said the father of three. “It’s giving a path to college that a l ot of kids don’t have. It’s a great opportunity for him and for a lot of kids, and to not take advantage of it would be crazy.” O bama recently l aunched her Reach Higher public awareness campaign to encourage students to aim higher than just a high school diploma. S he expanded it this week b y announcing the start of Better Make Room, a project to motivate youths from age 14 to 19 to complete their education past h igh school. J ames, who bypassed college by going straight to the pros, was joined at the event by his wife, Savannah, and their three c hildren.

Former Batavia Notre Dame girls basketball coach Bill Wade calls V olpe a legend at the school, without hesitation. Volpe was inducted i nto the Section V Basketball Hall of Fame four years ago. “She was our leader,” Wade said. “What separated her from every other athlete I’ve coached, is s he simply refused to l ose. It was an excellent attribute.” Wade laughs about how m uch statistical double- doubles are celebrated these days, as he points o ut that Volpe played 77 games with him as coach and produced the feat 77 t imes. were students in their classes. “ Their rooms were right next to each other’s,” Sheppard said. Volpe, listed at 5 feet 11inches as a senior, averaged 23.5 points and 15.8 rebounds during B atavia Notre Dame’s 2 5-1championship season. A two-time All- Greater Rochester first- t eam selection, she was named the Class D state player of the year by the N ew York State Sportswriters Associatio and, finished fifth among S ection V’s all-time lead- “Everyday you had the s ame attitude from her, whether it was a practice or a game,” Wade said. “I had three years of joy c oaching her.” Volpe starred at Monroe Community College a nd Roberts Wesleyan College, averaging 12.6 points as a senior at Roberts in 2002-03. She was named MVP of the Chase Scholarship Basketball Tournament as a junior in 2 002. She earned her mast er’s degree at Converse College in Spartanburg, S.C., and also served as a g raduate assistant coach for the Converse women’s basketball team. V olpe has a 7-year old son named Maddox. “He’s very much into b aseball, and just joined a basketball team, which w ould make Chrissy really proud,” Sheppard said. “She was always texting his stats. “ It’s really been just the two of them in South Carolina.” V olpe spent the last 10 years or so building a good-sized base of customers and introducing products as a wine sales representative. ‘She’s always been q uite the salesman,” S heppard said. There is a memorial service for Volpe on T hursday in South Carolina. Her ashes will be brought back for a ser- v ice in Batavia, yet to be scheduled.
