NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. — On Wednesday, WWE Superstar Titus O'Neil visited Gulf Middle School to help unveil a new innovation lab that will "provide opportunities for students to learn and play in a safe and fun environment during and after school."
This isn't the first time the larger-than-life wrestling personality has given back to Pasco County Schools, according to the district.
Thaddeus Bullard, as O'Neil is known when he's not wrestling, and his foundation proposed a partnership with the school district to create two innovation labs -- one at Gulf Middle School and another at Pasco Middle School.
The Bullard Family Foundation partnered with Skanska and Microsoft to provide all equipment, furniture and electronics for the lab, a release from the district said.
Titus O'Neil is known for his philanthropic work throughout Tampa Bay area communities and schools, including past work with Hillsborough County Schools.
