SY State Treasurer Ted Wheeler "Opportunity Initiative"

To support an exciting start to the winter 2013 term, the Sylvania Campus is hosting a press conference led by State Treasurer Ted Wheeler on Tuesday, Jan. 15 at 10 a.m. in the Performing Arts Lobby.

The State Treasurer's presentation marks the formal launch of Oregon's "Opportunity Initiative," a proposal with the potential to provide thousands of additional students with Oregon Opportunity Grants in an effort to create a stable way to make higher education more accessible and affordable. He will outline details of the initiative at the press conference, as well as answer questions from attendees.

Sylvania Campus President Dr. Linda Gerber will offer the welcome and introduction of Ted Wheeler, and student and business representatives will participate in the event, as well.

All are welcome to attend -- the more, the merrier! For additional details about the Opportunity Initiative, please visit: http://buyoregonbonds.com/treasury/AboutTreasury/Pages/Opportunity-Initiative.aspx.

In the event of questions, contact Kate Chester, Sylvania Community Relations Manager, at 971.722.8233.
