“Standing Above the Crowd,” is a new book by former NBA star James Donaldson. He literally stands above the crowd. At 7’4”, the ceiling above the New Hong Kong Restaurant’s stage was almost not high enough for James. His head touches it if he stands up straight.
He was there to present to one of the winners at the Diversity Makes a Difference Scholarship Gala on April 1.
High school students from all over Western Washington just swarmed around him for photos and autographs.
Many of them will be the first in their family to go to college. For others, it was their first time meeting an NBA star. ♦
