SLAM! - Sports Leadership Arts and Management Academy Charter Schools
Labor & Employment Shareholder Rene F. Ruiz is a co-founder of the Sports Leadership Arts and Management (SLAM!) Academy network of public charter schools. SLAM! serves an overwhelmingly minority student population and unlocks seemingly unattainable opportunities within the sports industry for its students.
Rene serves as the Chairman of SLAM!, which has campuses in Miami, Las Vegas, Palm Beach and San Antonio. Rene also serves as the President and Chief Executive of the SLAM! Foundation, which helps direct the network’s growing list of corporate partnerships and supports the network’s current campus expansion in Miami, as well as the upcoming replications of its successful model in Tampa, Orlando, North Miami Beach, Huntsville, and beyond.
SLAM! has received immense support from global superstar Pitbull, a co-founder and the network’s Brand Ambassador. With his dedicated support, SLAM! has garnered significant national attention through features on The Today Show, Good Morning America, The Tonight Show, the Katie Couric Show, National Public Radio, The Washington Post, ABC Nightline, and CNN, among countless others.
SLAM!’s journey from “305 to Worldwide” took an important step in 2016, when it was awarded a channel on Sirius XM Satellite Radio to be produced by students of the SLAM! network, the first-ever school to receive such an honor. SLAM! Radio is set for its global launch in winter 2017.
