About the Leadership in Education Award:
Since 1905, Concordia University has prepared teachers who make a positive difference in the lives of the children and families they serve. Today, most philanthropic, business, civic, and political leaders recognize that a quality education is essential for our nation's strength as a democratic society in a highly competitive world. All too often we see signs that our nation is failing to deliver on that promise for too many grade school and secondary school students.
This award, given each year in early spring, is designed to honor one or more of those leaders for their unique and important contributions to significantly improving education in the Pacific Northwest or beyond. In particular, this award, named after Oregon's highly esteemed former Governor Victor Atiyeh for his life-long passion and leadership for education, is presented to the leader(s) whose professional, philanthropic, business, civic, and/or political actions, advocacy or other leadership has profoundly changed the odds for our children to succeed in school and in life.
