February 7, 2017 | 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm | Portland Art Museum
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. This award 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 life.
Cocktail Reception: 5:00 pm on the first floor in the Sunken Ballroom.
Program & Dinner: 6:30 pm on the third floor in the Kridel Grand Ballroom. New this year we will have a paddle raise.

The Governor Victor Atiyeh Leadership in Education Awards give us an opportunity to continue the conversation on education, celebrate those making a positive impact, and find inspiration to serve as leaders in change. The proceeds from this event will benefit Concordia student scholarships and the 3 to PhD initiative, a public-private partnership between Concordia University, Faubion School, and Portland Public Schools as we develop a new national model to create safer, healthier, more educated communities.
