Regional business and community leaders took a brief recess from their busy work, family and community lives to express appreciation for the region’s quality educational system by honoring 26 exemplary staff and volunteers.
The honors were presented as part of the Learn Here Project, an effort to showcase our educational system and its remarkable leaders to inspire others and attract people and businesses considering relocating or expanding in the region. A 20-minute virtual presentation celebrating 26 staff and volunteers and describing our educational system is available at www.discoverclark.org/learn.
“We are so appreciative by those who work so diligently in preparing our students,” said Chad Sessions of Real Living The Real Estate Group. “Through their hard work and creativity, they are helping prepare our next generation of citizens, workers and leaders, which in turn, helps us grow our economy and community.”
Real Living is joined by Northwest Capital Mortgage, the Port of Vancouver USA, iQ Credit Union and the business group Identity Clark County in supporting the Learn Here Project. The virtual presentation was completed with support from Waste Connections and produced by Versa Events.
