For many in our community, grades are being submitted, graduates are being celebrated, fiscal years are coming to an end, and summer is beckoning. We hope that the end of the school year is a smooth one and that you will enjoy your summer ahead!
We, at GPSEN, are entering our own new leadership cycle for 2017-2018. Please join us in welcoming our new Board Members:
Karen Carrillo, Columbia Slough Watershed Council
Serena Dressel, PSU Student Sustainability Center
Janine Gates, City of Portland
Neeraja Havaligi, GPSEN Fellow
Renzo Meza, Latino Network
They will join our nine current Board members to help guide and implement our strategic plan, along with our many committee members, advisers, interns, and volunteers. We also thank Nicole Baber, LeRoy Patton, and Kim Smith, for their service, as they step down from the Board. LeRoy and Kim will remain as Senior Advisers, supporting the advancement of our sustainability mission. Lin Harmon-Walker, current Board President, will transition into our Interim Director role at the end of September, as Kim takes a year off to explore personal and professional development opportunities. We are all in this together, so we hope that you will find ways to engage in GPSEN in the coming year, as well.
Events tend to quiet down over the summer, but there are still plenty of opportunities below, including community events, trainings, jobs and internships, and new curriculum resources. Are you looking for a job? There are plenty! Please, check out the details below.
