Heartfelt Thank You to Dr. Alicia Moreland-Capuia for Visiting Academy

 We want to say a heartfelt thank you to Dr. Alicia Moreland-Capuia, Dr. of Psychiatry, for stopping by our academy this week to share her story with our kids. Dr. Moreland-Capuia, who is an original “I Have A Dream” recipient told of her journey, a childhood full of adversity but still going on to attend Stanford University and then on to George Washington University School of Medicine. With her love for learning, many many mentors and a drive to serve her community, Dr. Moreland-Capuia took time to tell our academy “dream big” because you too can make a difference.

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.
