Carlos Santana, House of Blues and The Milagro Foundation to Fund Research Project at Agassi Prep
When you ask for a drumroll and you’re Andre Agassi, you get an entire drumline! That is how the afternoon began as Agassi, a leading supporter of education, joined House of Blues Las Vegas headliner Carlos Santana and his wife, Cindy Blackman Santana, to announce a special partnership and research project with Square Panda and the Andre Agassi College Preparatory Academy (Pictured: Carlos Santana, Cindy Blackman Santana and Andre Agassi Photo credit: Denise Truscello / WireImage).

Carlos is back in Las Vegas for shows at the House of Blues beginning tomorrow (Nov. 2) so he took some time to visit the school and make this special announcement.

Square Panda is an educational product that turns a simple tablet into a comprehensive multisensory Phonics system. The tool measures each student’s individual progress and challenges through game play patterns, allowing educators to get a more complete view of a student’s education and help to create a solid reading base that is fundamental for future learning.
