Eric is active in the non-profit world implementing innovative educational options for at risk youth in the Lee County School district in Southwest Florida. Launched in October 2014, The Academy, a partnership with Olympia Track Club Academy, is pioneering a 2 year program focused on changing the culture within the Ft. Myers black and Latino communities using youth sports as the motivator to drive academic excellence. In the first year, The Academy students are expected to be at or above grade level in math and reading (some for the first time since 3rd grade) by the start of the 2015 school year. The two year test will prove that these students have been neglected for years and are fully capable of achieving at the highest level given the opportunity.
