Thanks to Regis University's Military & Veteran Services we were able to deliver 30+ bags to PBLA families. Regis University food pantry organizers helped feed more than 400 families this week thanks to a $10,000 grant from the Denver Department of Public Health and Environment.
After careful consideration and dialogue with Coach Lonnie Porter, Chauncey Billups, the outstanding staff of PBLA, and the Regis University Board of Trustees, we have made the heart wrenching decision to cancel the Academy this summer. It is even more bittersweet as we all looked forward to our 25th anniversary and milestone.
At the 2019 Porter-Billups Leadership Academy Gala, Phillip Lindsay served as the keynote speaker alongside another Denver native-turned-sports star, Chauncey Billups. Billups and Regis University Men's Head Basketball Coach Lonnie Porter serve as two of the Academy's leaders.
