Looks like Dr. Dre dug deep into his wallet to help improve the school experience for teens growing up in the neighborhood he was reared in, it was reported on Thursday, June 15. Thanks to the Aftermath Entertainment CEO the new Compton High School will now have a top tier facility to host arts programming and performances.
The Compton Unified School District confirms that Dre has pledged a $10 million donation towards efforts to construct a performing arts complex. The 1,200-seat theater that has been planned is said to be equipped with digital media production facilities and state of the art equipment. While it will be based in the high school, community members will be pleased to know that the facility will be open to the public.
“My goal is to provide kids with the kind of tools and learning they deserve,” Dre said in a statement issued to The LA Times. “The performing arts center will be a place for young people to be creative in a way that will help further their education and positively define their future.”
Local leaders have been thanking the hip-hop mogul for going above and beyond for the project, as it has been reported that not only will Dre be making a hefty monetary contribution, he will be leading efforts to raise the remainder of the money needed for its construction. The city has projected that the complex will be raised by the year 2020.
