Well, okay, the actual Tiger Woods is not moving to Capitol Hill. But his generous, charitable spirit may be finding a new home there.
His Tiger Woods Foundation submitted a proposal to take over the Hine Junior High School site near Eastern Market. The complex would become home to the next Tiger Woods Learning Center, which hosts, among other things, classes in “career exploration” and “career preparation” for older school-age kids. Topics include: Aerospace, Communications, Digital Manufacturing, Multimedia, Robotics, Universal Science or Engineering.
“The Tiger Woods Foundation is exploring many sites in the D.C. area, and we are dedicated to finding a location that best serves the District’s young people. We are taking into consideration several key factors, including proximity to public transportation, safety, the availability of land and cost. We are hopeful to announce a location soon,” said Greg McLaughlin, President and CEO Tiger Woods Foundation, in a written statement.
Unfortunately, Tiger’s got some competitors. Ten development teams want Hine.
