Marie Abino Awarded Class of 2025 Jordan Brand Wings Scholarship
Please join us in celebrating MLF High School Program student Marie Abino who was selected to receive a Wings Scholarship. Marie will join the Jordan Brand Wings Scholars Class of 2025. Marie is a Senior at Benson High School in Portland who has been a part of the Maurice Lucas Foundation program since middle school.
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 2025 will be joining over 300 students who have already received the Wings scholarship, as the seventh 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.
