HOUSTON, TX – Student assemblies are a great way to get out of class, but not always a ton of fun. That was not the case for students at Houston’s Carnegie Vanguard High School.

What was supposed to be just another meeting in the cafeteria turned into a flash mob with Rockets center Dwight Howard at the center of it all.

Howard showed up to launch his “Block Out Violence” Campaign targeting middle & high school students. Howard’s encouraging students to compete in promoting non-violence in schools, which would ideally carry over into our communities.

Students can submit videos, pictures, and all sorts of creative campaigns to promote the peace, and the winner will get some pretty sweet gifts (like Rockets tickets and a chance to meet the team).

In sports talk, this campaign is ‘Nothin’ but net’.
