Professional basketball player Maurice “Mo” Creek, a Prince George’s County native, was playing in the Ukrainian Basketball SuperLeague when hostilities broke out. He faced a harrowing journey to escape the embattled nation. 

A group of local leaders, including Prince George’s County Council Chairman Calvin Hawkins, Bladensburg Councilmember Jocelyn Route, Senator Ben Cardin and Rep. Anthony Brown, worked behind the scenes to bring him home. 

Creek finally arrived back in the States on Thursday. On Saturday, G.S. Proctor & Associates was proud to co-sponsor a Welcome Home Celebration for Creek.

Hawkins, Route and Sweet Tooth Cakes and Pastries also sponsored the event. We’re thankful that Creek is home safe and grateful for everyone who helped make it happen.
