Thank you Gresham Police for being part of the Leadership Academy Law and Justice day. As you can see, the Gresham Police didn’t trust Scott Thomas or Matt Miller with any “real” weapons. Judge Waller and Andre Wang also were part of the full day of fun and information.
It is always a fun AM at Outta the Box. Sue Hughes, Resolutions (left), Christie Kinsey, Landmark Tax and Investment, and Brenda Felix, Riverview Community Bank, were into the spirit of the morning.
