On Tiger Jeet Singh’s philanthropy and work in community, Milton city’s new school was named “Tiger Jeet Singh Public School” in Ontario, Canada. This school is under construction on Yates Dr., near Derry Rd. W. and Thompson Rd. S. at Milton, about 40 miles from Toronto. It will host junior kindergarten to Grade 8.
Tiger Jeet Singh, 65, philanthropist said:
- I feel great and I'm so excited because we are so much involved with children
- It’s a good opportunity to get involved directly with children; my main (message) will be good health and studying well.
- It is such an honor for me. What I am doing in the ring, that’s part of my job, that’s not the real Tiger Jeet Singh. Outside, I am a family man who is devoted to the community.
School Trustee Donna Danielle said:
- Tiger Jeet Singh is almost-retired wrestler and has been a goodwill ambassador for Milton since the 1980s
- He was recently named to its Hall of Fame.
- Milton’s mayor even supported naming a school after him.
- He definitely makes a difference in the community and I believe that he will be a very positive role model and mentor at that school
- He is promoting the importance of education as well as anti-drug and anti-gang messages.
- The number of visible minorities has risen 780 per cent in Milton in recent years, and “all the data shows that students are more engaged in their learning when they see themselves reflected in the culture and community of their school.
Tiger Jeet Singh’s son, Tiger Jeet Singh Jr. said:
- I and my dad will be involved at the new school, and will also implement Tiger-fit, their healthy living/fitness promotion program that costs schools nothing but helps them raise funds.
- My own children attend Milton public schools, and he coaches the boys’ basketball team.
Tiger Jeet Singh donated $100,000 to a Milton hospital and also $25,000 to Milton’s Historical Society.
