SOMEONE TO LOOK UP TO – Professional basketball player Damen Bell-Holter talks to fourth- and fifth-grade students at Keet Gooshi Heen Elementary School Wednesday. The 6'-9" Mt. Edgecumbe High School alumnus played NCAA ball for Oral Roberts University and signed a contract with the Boston Celtics in 2013. The Hydaburg native played with the club's farm team, the Maine Red Claws, before joining European league teams. Recently he has been working as a motivational speaker at schools.
