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 21 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. About 130 community and education leaders gathered at Washington State University Vancouver to celebrate this year’s class of Learn Here Heroes.
“We are so appreciative of those who work so diligently in preparing our students,” said Chad Sessions of Windermere Northwest Living. “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.”
Windermere Northwest Living is joined by the Port of Vancouver USA, iQ Credit Union and the business group Identity Clark County in supporting the Learn Here Project.
