CHARLOTTE — Middle school students got the opportunity to showcase their custom eyewear created for Charlotte Hornets guard Kelly Oubre Jr.
For months, the students have been working on the project, partnering with the Hornets, Honeywell, and the nonprofit Digi-Bridge.

“I get to play in front of thousands of people every night, but these kids are doing things on a day-to-day basis to improve themselves and set themselves up for the future,” Oubre told Channel 9.
