OnPoint Community CU Offers $50,000 In Teacher Prizes
PORTLAND, Ore. – OnPoint Community CU, formerly Portland Teachers CU, will award almost $45,000 to deserving public and private K-12 teachers and their schools, including paying the mortgage for one year of the Educator of the Year, plus provide $5,000 to the respective teacher’s school for necessary resources and supplies.
Last year, hundreds of local teachers were nominated by their peers, students, parents and communities for the prize. Tandy Wolf, a special education teacher from Cedaroak Primary in West Linn, was named Educator of the Year. Wolf received her mortgage paid for one year, plus $5000 for supplies to benefit Cedaroak Primary.
In addition to the Educator of the Year award, a Community Choice winner will be selected and awarded $1,500 cash and receive $1,500 for their school. Three finalists will also be selected and will each collect $1,500, as well as $1,500 for their school.
