Mike Singletary Superbowl Event

“We are excited about our close partnership with Shmoop to close education gaps and better support students, teachers, and educators.” - Mike Singletary

What happens when a Super Bowl champion becomes a champion for students and their mental health? Former NFL linebacker and coach Mike Singletary will host an invitation-only event centered on this topic for his nonprofit organization, Changing our Perspective, on Feb. 11.

As people converge on the greater Phoenix area for both Super Bowl LVII and the Waste Management Phoenix Open, Singletary will bring together stars from the NFL, NBA, and PGA tour alongside politicians, educators, and superintendents to recognize educators and drive awareness around solutions that improve student outcomes in underserved communities.

Changing Our Perspective has partnered with Shmoop to provide programs to schools in need. Shmoop offers test preparation programs and the Shmoop Heartbeat, a research-backed tool that identifies how non-academic factors of a student's life deeply impact their ability to perform academically.

“Everyone at Shmoop is so inspired by Coach Singletary’s passion for students, and we’re excited to bring changemakers from across the country together to explore options for progress,” said Shmoop’s CEO, Andy Rahden.

Singletary will host the exclusive event—co-sponsored by Microsoft, Rehrig, and Pepsi—at Shmoop’s headquarters in Scottsdale. During the event, he will present several outstanding educators with his “Tackling The Gap” education award.

“We are excited about our close partnership with Shmoop to close education gaps and better support students, teachers, and mentors,” said Singletary. “It’s incredible to see the difference a good teacher can make when they have the right tools, and we look forward to making an even bigger impact for more students in the future.”

There is no charge to attend the event, but it is limited to invited guests. To request an invitation or more details, visit
