Unveiling of Dr. Walter J. Porter Portrait-Part#2

     The unveiling of Dr. Walter J. Porter was a very spiritual and symbolic event for me. It opened my ears and my heart to want to continue in my father’s legacy, and continue the Porter Foundation in San Diego to benefit the children of Title I schools in the Southeastern part of the city.  The artist Clarence “Pencilman” Pointer and I unveiled the portraits to the Walter J. Porter Elementary School’s children, parents, teachers, and community members of the San Diego Community.

I did a prior post a few days ago of the event. To read click: Unveiling of Dr. Walter J. Porter Portrait: Part #1.
