July 22, 2008

A professional athlete from Shreveport is giving back to his hometown.

Antawn Jamison is teaming up with Community Renewal International, Bellaire Baptist Church and Kaboom, to design a dream playground for children.

"For me, it's about giving back, putting smiles on kid's faces. Let them know that I'm from the same situation you're from and that if you continue to work hard and dream, anything is possible," said Jamison. [More]
