Longtime AAU Member/Volunteer Remembered

Written by Administrator

Preston Kim "PK" MartinUPPER MARLBORO, Md. - It is with great sadness that the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) shares the passing of longtime AAU member and volunteer Preston Kim "PK" Martin on Friday, January 8, 2021. A resident of Upper Marlboro, Maryland, PK dedicated his life in service to amateur athletes for more than thirty (30) years.

For many years, PK served in the Potomac Valley AAU District (District of Columbia, counties of Montgomery, Prince Georges in Maryland, and Arlington and Fairfax and cities of Alexandria and Falls Church in Virginia). First as a member and coach, then later on as a volunteer, most notably, as Boys Basketball District Sports Director and later Governor - tirelessly working towards affording youth and adult athletes of all ages participation opportunities across multiple sports.

Upon his passing, he had held numerous positions within the AAU -- both on the local and national level. On the local level, PK served as PVAAU Boys' Basketball Director since 2002 and soon became PVAAU Governor, a position he held until his passing. Nationally, PK was part of multiple AAU sport and administrative committees. He served for many years on the National AAU Volunteer Services Committee and the National AAU Finance Committee.

Written by Administrator

Beverly Ellis WebIt is with deepest regret that we announce the recent passing of one of our most dedicated workers and team member. On the morning of Sunday, June 28 at the Greater Baltimore Medical Center, Beverly Ellis peacefully passed away, after a long illness, at the age of 54.

“Aunt Bev,” as she was affectionately called by the youth she served and guided, enjoyed a lengthy career with Aon Insurance Corporation in Baltimore. She also worked for a time at the Baltimore City Bureau of Parks and Recreation’s Webster-Kendricks Recreation Center. She then transferred to the Youth and Adults Sports Program as a Gym Leader, managing youth and adult basketball leagues, tournaments and clinics.

Beverly was an outstanding Maryland AAU Volunteer for over 16 years, having served as an AAU Sports Commissioner for the Boys Basketball Program, and she was also a valued team member on our Annual Banquet Committee. “Beverly never hesitated to serve and was happy to do so,” said Antoinette DuBose, Maryland District 2nd Lieutenant Governor. “She was a true trooper.”
