Volunteer of the Month

Morgan Tisdale and his wife moved to Astoria from Portland a little over three years ago. They had been dreaming of the move to Astoria for 10-15 years, and when they became pregnant, decided the time was right. Morgan had been practicing Jiu Jitsu for 10 years at that point, and as he and his wife were expecting, decided he wanted to teach kids for the experience of “fatherhood” training. The rest is history. Morgan has been volunteering as the Jiu Jitsu instructor with Astoria Parks and Recreation ever since. Morgan is one of the Managers at Buoy Beer and now has a two year old son named Spencer. We greatly appreciate the time and effort that Morgan continues to put in week after week and year after year investing in the youth in our community.
