Donell Morgan is the director of Elevate Oregon whose mentors build relationships with Parkrose students to promote education and help them develop leadership, life skills, and character. He is a former professional basketball player with college coaching experience who now coaches the Parkrose boys basketball team. Donell shares how all of his life experiences and values of mentorship culminated in his role with Elevate.
I first met Donell when we were both on the Parkrose-Argay Development Study committee advocating for our community. He’s a neighbor of mine in Argay Terrace, and I’ve enjoyed getting to know him. He’s such a valuable member of our community through his work at the school and his mentorship to students and now to other mentors.
