Meet our Parkrose Program Manager Alex Jones – Teacher Appreciation Week
“Throughout my educational life history, my experience has shown me that no performance model or approach is the gold standard, rather a collection and blend of many to improve and enhance the performance of our youth. The Maurice Lucas Foundation program and its success are a direct reflection of this philosophy. We all have individuals in our own lives that have helped us along the way, who believed in us and took the time to help us recognize our own potential. It’s important for me to do the same for the next generation, whether through education or sport.”
– Alex Jones, Parkrose Program Manager
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.
