Scouting report
The Dwight Powell Children and Family Support Program at UT Southwestern Simmons Cancer Center was created in memory of Powell’s mother, Jacqueline Weir, who passed away in 2012. She never got to see her son play an NBA game, but her memory lives on through her son. The fund assists patients and their families in coping with the hardships of cancer. Powell decided that should he make it to the NBA, he would dedicate his career to a calling much more significant than himself and use the tools his mom taught him to help others. “She said if you want something, there’s nothing that can stop you from getting it other than your own decisions,” Powell said. “A few of the things we talked about are in the works now, so hopefully, she’s looking down and smiling.”
