GregCAMP Director
Greg Contreras is the son of Lala and Goyo Contreras. Greg was born into a migrant family. He remembers his parents dropping him off at a Migrant Head Start Program in Nyssa, Oregon while his parents worked the fields of Eastern Oregon, also known as Onion Country. As a young teen, Greg also spent his summers alongside his family weeding and picking. His family introduced him to the sombrero, and in return, Greg introduced his family to education. After graduation from Ontario High School, Greg was the first in his family to attend college. He graduated from Treasure Valley Community College in Ontario, Oregon in 2003 before transferring to Oregon State University in Corvallis, Oregon. There Greg accomplished a Bachelors Degree in Human Development and Family Sciences and Masters Degree in Counselor Education and Supervision. After a decade of working in higher education, Greg is proud to find himself again in a community college setting at Portland Community College. He is excited to work for CAMP. He is motivated to help migrant students and families achieve prosperity and growth through education. His goal is working with his CAMP Team to build a successful culture of CAMP at PCC Rock Creek to serve the migrant community of Washington County for years to come.
