Cleveland Cavaliers All-Star Kid presentation January 6, 2020


Averie Crowe‭, ‬a kindergartner at Renwood Elementary School‭, ‬was named January 2020‭ ‬Cleveland Cavaliers All-Star Kid‭! ‬

On December 16‭, ‬2019‭, ‬Averie was surprised in her classroom by Cleveland Cavaliers announcer Ahmaad Crump‭, ‬Moondog and her family‭. ‬She will receive 4‭ ‬VIP tickets to the January 25‭, ‬2020‭ ‬home game when the Cavs take on the Chicago Bulls‭. ‬Averie will also receive the game ball from the team captain and will be recognized on center court‭. ‬Plus‭, ‬her kindergarten class will have a pizza‭ ‬party‭!‬

Her teacher‭, ‬Rebecca Midea‭, ‬nominated Averie for the award‭. ‬

“Before the school year started‭, ‬I found out that we were going to be getting a student who had double cochlear implants‭,‬”‭ ‬she shared‭. ‬“I was super excited because I have complete unilateral hearing loss and really felt like she was meant to be in my classroom‭.‬”

“She comes to school every single day with by far the BIGGEST smile on her face‭,‬”‭ ‬Midea expressed‭. ‬“She is so positive and an amazing role model to her peers‭. ‬She makes our days brighter and makes us all remember that when we are faced with an obstacle that seems hard to overcome‭, ‬we should tackle it head-on‭. ‬I can’t think of anyone more deserving and I am so blessed to be the first teacher touched by the Averie magic‭.‬”‭ ‬
