This is one of our favorites every year: the Education Celebration Award.
We love recognizing achievement by K-12 educators in the state of Oregon and we’re proud to share our first winner in this school year, Andy Nelson, music teacher and band leader at North Albany Middle School.
Humbled by this recognition, Andy is all about empowering his students to find what they thrive on most. We had a chance to catch up with Andy after the ceremony to get his thoughts on the award, what he values most about teaching, optimism about education in Oregon and more.
We are accepting nominations for the next Education Celebration Award now. Please visit the Oregon College Savings Plan site for more information.
