After the tragic passing of actor Angus Cloud, his former teacher, Mike Oz, is determined to honor his memory in a meaningful way. Oz, who is now the executive director of the Oakland School for the Arts, has started a crowdfunding campaign to raise $2 million for the construction of Cloud Memorial Park in Oakland.

Cloud, who graduated from the Oakland School for the Arts and was known for his role in the hit series "Euphoria," was an avid skateboarder. He and Oz would often skateboard together after school. Oz wants the park to reflect Cloud's creativity and passion for art, envisioning a stage and performance area, a graffiti tribute wall, a soccer field, and a basketball court.

The proposed park will be located in downtown Oakland and will be a part of the OSA Uptown Art Park. Oz believes that the park will not only honor Cloud but also serve as a tribute to all the OSA students who were lost too soon due to suicide, murder, and drugs. He hopes the park will bring positivity, art, and music to the community.

Skateboarding legend Tony Hawk has also shown his support for the project through his Skatepark Project foundation. Hawk believes that establishing the park in honor of Angus Cloud, who cared deeply for his community, is fitting.

Cloud's career was just taking off, and he had landed roles in several films before his passing. His kindness and enthusiasm for others were remembered by director Daniel Brown, who worked with Cloud on the upcoming thriller "Your Lucky Day."
