The Cleveland Cavaliers has teamed up with Westfield Insurance in a program to honor those students who have achieved straight A’s for two grading periods. During the regular basketball season a selection of 300 students in grades K-12 who reside in Cuyahoga, Lorain, Summit, Medina, Portage, Geauga, Lake and Ashtabula counties and who have achieved straight A’s receive two tickets to a Cleveland Cavaliers home game as well as a “Straight A All-Star T-Shirt.

Along with the individual student honors, the school with the highest number of straight A’s students was awarded with a pep rally. This year’s winner was Copley-Fairlawn Middle School whose students submitted 264 perfect report cards. In order to celebrate this fantastic accomplishment, the Cleveland Cavaliers brought Cavs Mascots Moondog and Sir C.C., in-arena host Ahmaad Crump and game announcer Oliver Sedra to the Monday, February 10, 2014 pep rally at the school.

During the spirited assembly, the Cleveland Cavaliers and Westfield Insurance presented an oversized check for $1000.00 to Copley-Fairlawn Middle School principal Kathy Ashcroft. Just when the excitement could not be ramped up any higher it was announced that everyone in attendance at the pep rally would receive two tickets to an upcoming Cavs game.

“Westfield believes in promoting education and helping prepare students to gain the knowledge required to succeed in the future. This fun program supports our long legacy of sharing knowledge and building trust and has a positive impact on the students and communities in Northeast Ohio,” says Marianne Parkinson, Westfield Group Customer and Marketing Leader. “We are proud to partner with the Cavs to make the Straight “A” All-Star program possible.”

All eligible entrants who participate in this year’s Straight “A” All-Star program receive an official Cavaliers Straight “A” All-Stars certificate and drawstring backpack!
