LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Comedian Dane Cook, rock band Daughtry, and musicians Tim McGraw and Brian McKnight are headlining a benefit concert in Las Vegas for the Andre Agassi College Preparatory Academy.
Agassi is hosting the event Saturday night at the Wynn Las Vegas hotel-casino. The tennis star says the public charter school is an example of what education could be in Nevada and elsewhere if schools get proper funding and full support from parents.
The K-12 school, with about 600 students, graduated its first seniors this year. Agassi says they give the people who support the academy a reason to celebrate and justify their mission.
Everyone in this year's graduating class moved on to higher education.
