Sneaker store associate turned YouTube sensation Joe La Puma was invited back to his alma mater (Bay Shore, Class of 2001) last week to talk to current students about crushing it in the real world.
He was invited back to Bay Shore as part of the high school’s “Breakfast of Champions” guest series, though which 13 students get nominated by teachers to attend.
“It was a really special to be back,” La Puma told GreaterBayShore. “After the breakfast I surprised the kids with brand new Nike Air Max 270s that Finish Line donated for me.”
“I want to work with the high school on a number of projects going forward,” he added.
