PONTIAC, Mich. -

Pontiac’s Center for Success will be having its grand opening today. 

This time last year the former police station was abandoned and falling apart.

Now after $70,000 in renovations the building has been transformed into a positive learning environment for kids.

The project was the result of two brother’s dream to make a positive difference in the community.

DJ and Ryan Ikeler started the Center for Success as a place for students to receive tutoring help twice a week.

The brothers bought the building after raising money through Facebook from people and private organizations. 

The tutoring will be offered for kindergarteners through 6th graders from 4:30-6:30 on Tuesdays and for 7th through 12th graders from 4:30-6:30 on Thursdays. 

Grand opening celebrations will take place this evening from 5-8pm. 

The center is located at 245 E. Rundell Street in Pontiac.
