 ATLANTA, Sept. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Students at George Washington Carver Comprehensive High School had the opportunity to meet NBA star Rumeal Robinson, at a special assembly held at the school on Sept. 16, 1992. This special school program was held in conjunction with Higher Goals, a new half-hour public television special featuring NBA superstar Isiah Thomas of the Detroit Pistons.

The assembly and television special were sponsored by Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc.
 Rumeal Robinson offered advice to students who are eyeing professional sports, or other "dream" careers, on the need to first get an education, the very subject of the public television special. Students also viewed Higher Goals.
 Joining the Atlanta Hawks as a first round selection in the 1990 draft, Rumeal Robinson started in 64 of 81 games. He has averaged 10.3 points per


game and has led the team in scoring 7 times.
 Joining Rumeal Robinson on Sept. 16 was local Toyota dealer Dan Phelps of Kelley Toyota.
 "Toyota believes that our future as a society depends on being able to draw on a resource of individuals who have received a high quality education," commented Dan Phelps, who presented a $2,000 scholarship check to George Washington Carver Comprehensive High School on behalf of Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc. "Through our sponsorship of Higher Goals, and our participation in this school's program, we remain true to our belief in returning a portion of what we earn to the community -- education is where we've chosen to place our focus."
