Sep. 5 2017


Today, New Orleans Saints Safety Von Bell made a surprise visit to Istrouma High School in Baton Rouge to award their athletic program $2,000 as part of the POWERADE® Power Your School program.

“The POWERADE® Power Your School Program was created by Coca-Cola United six years ago as a local promotion in Louisiana and South Mississippi markets,” said Sarah Gillis, Media & Promotions Director for the West Region of Coca-Cola United. “The impact the program has made on high school athletic programs has been heartwarming, so much so that the Powerade brand team took notice and decided to make it a national program this fall. We appreciate Von Bell coming to Istrouma High School today to help surprise them with $2,000, they were an ideal choice for the award today based on the reopening of the school this fall and the celebration of their 100 year anniversary,” she added.
