Listen to this article

PROUD MOMENT AT the Trail Blazers–(l-r) Derrick Anderson, Earl Chaney, and Nick Jones pause after Chaney is honored for his “unselfish dedication and service helping improve the lives of others.”

Martin Luther King once said, “Everyone can be great because everyone can serve.” February was black history month and at each home basketball game, the Portland Trail Blazers honored one outstanding local African-American whose unselfish dedication and service helps to improve the lives of others.

During the Blazers vs. Spurs game on February 11, 2003, the team publicly honored Earl Chaney, director of The Salvation Army Moore Street’s Biddy Basketball program for his excellent community service.

Chaney received a $500 stipend, which he has donated to the Portland Opportunity Industrialization Center (POIC). He also received a Black History Month ticket section sponsored by Dale Davis, which will host kids and their families from the Salvation Army Moore Street Biddy Ball program. Chaney has dedicated his life to faith-based service in the Portland Community, focusing time and attention to the Salvation Army Moore Street Center.

Chaney was the first of eight local African-Americans to be honored, selected based on his outstanding achievements and contributions to his community.
