Thousands of students and their families celebrated their success in school at the 11th annual Marvin Lewis Community Fund “Learning Is Cool” Academic Achievement Celebration last Monday with Marvin Lewis, FC Cincinnati and FC Cincinnati Foundation.

8,500 students from Cincinnati Public, Covington Independent, Middletown City, and North College Hill schools who have achieved the “A” honor roll at least twice in the 2018-2019 school year were invited to the celebration which included photos with former Bengals Head Coach Marvin Lewis, FC Cincinnati President Jeff Berding, and FC Cincinnati players.

After 11 years of “Learning Is Cool,” the Marvin Lewis Community Fund is passing the program over to the FC Cincinnati Foundation, whose mission is to improve the lives of children through the love of soccer through an emphasis on education, physical activity, and character building. This transition in leadership will allow the “Learning Is Cool” program to continue on for many years.
