The “Promise of Oregon” recently added another Umatilla School District student to its statewide public education support campaign.
Clara Brownell Middle School student Santiago Gutierrez expressed a commitment to keep his grades up so he can become a surgeon and help save people’s lives. Launched by the Oregon School Boards Association, the campaign showcases school districts that are using cutting-edge programs to help prepare students for careers and college. The “Promise” views today’s students as Oregon’s greatest natural resource and encourages Oregonians to invest in public schools so the next generation can reach its potential.
“We need to continue to dream bigger,” said Jim Green, OSBA’s executive director. “Public schools are the best investment we can make in our young people.”
