MLF Participant Beatriz Santiago-Perez selected as Grant High School’s 2021 Portland Rose Festival Court Princess
Senior Beatriz Santiago-Perez will represent Grant High School on the 2021 Portland Rose Festival Court.
In middle school, I participated in a program called the Maurice Lucas Foundation which was a great opportunity where I was provided with tutors to help out with homework, making sure that I felt prepared for high school. Before COVID hit I would go tutor the middle schoolers who participated in the Maurice Lucas Foundation and help them out with homework whenever I was free.”

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.
