Cadence Crumble Awarded Class of 2026 Jordan Brand Wings Scholarship
Please join us in celebrating MLF High School Program student Cadence Crumble who was selected to receive a Wings Scholarship. Cadence will join the Jordan Brand Wings Scholars Class of 2026. Cadence is a Senior at Benson Polytechnic High School in Portland and has been a part of the Maurice Lucas Foundation program since middle school. Cadence will be attending HBU Clark University in Atlanta, Georgia in the fall.
In 2015, Jordan Brand began its Wings Scholars Program, an initiative that has provided students from disadvantaged areas with full-ride scholarships to college. Not only will each student be awarded a full ride to their four-year university, but they will be receiving a series of resources throughout their studies including mentorship and internship opportunities with the brand. The newly awarded Class of 2026 will be joining over 300 students who have already received the Wings scholarship, as the eighth cohort of Wings Scholars.
About the Maurice Lucas Foundation
The Foundation is named in honor of the late Maurice Lucas (1952-2010), the leading scorer on the 1977 NBA champion Trail Blazers team. Besides his outstanding achievements on the court, Lucas also selflessly gave his time and energy to Portland youth. Since its formation in 2010, the Maurice Lucas Foundation has served thousands of students and families through its Academy program, basketball camps and teams.
