Speaker(s): Nancy Golden, Chief Education Officer
Following the presentation of the Civic Awards, Dr. Nancy Golden, Oregon's Chief Education Officer, will share the vision behind the state's 40-40-20 goal. She will discuss her priorities for ensuring each student has boundless opportunities for a promising future.

In June of 2012, City Club of Portland completed an extensive study and published recommendations to improve Civics Education in Portland. To raise the profile of outstanding Civics Education work, City Club of Portland and Multnomah Bar Foundation are partnering to present the Civic Awards. The awards will recognize innovative work of organizations, leaders, and students in our community that are engaging youth in civic participation.

City Club is proud to announce the inaugural Civic Award Winners:

  • Momentum Alliance for their inclusiveness and their work to nurture future social justice leaders.
  • Oregon Community Foundation Community 101 for their innovative approach to facilitating student civic engagement.
  • Kendall Jensen, teacher, Roosevelt High School for her inspirational approach to connecting science curriculum to civic engagement.

Congratulations to all our winners! 

In August 2013, Dr. Nancy Golden accepted the position as Oregon’s Chief Education Officer. With over 30 years experience as an educational leader, Nancy formerly served as the superintendent for Springfield Public Schools in Springfield, Oregon from 2003-2013. She served as Educational Advisor to the Governor during the 2011 legislative session and continues to act as the alternate chair of the Oregon Investment Board. Under Nancy’s leadership, the Springfield District developed the Springfield Quality Education Model, significantly increased student achievement, and successfully passed a $42.7 million bond. In addition, the district was the first in Oregon to implement a One-to-One Initiative and opened a new school, the Academy of Arts and Academics. Nancy is highly regarded for her interest in promoting equity in our schools, and she was selected as Oregon’s Superintendent of the Year in 2011.
