Zealend Nelson-Stowe

Zealend Nelson-Stowe, a student at M.A. Lynch Elementary School, is being featured this week as part of a statewide public education support campaign known as “The Promise of Oregon.”

The Promise campaign, which officially debuted in November 2014, aims to create public support for K-14 education, to help lift student achievement and graduation rates. The Promise campaign also showcases districts whose cutting-edge programs are preparing students for careers and college.

As districts implement the Student Success Act, passed in 2019, the campaign helps demonstrate to the public how schools are making a difference in the lives of Oregon’s young people. The act will invest about $1 billion annually in the state’s public schools. 

Zealend is one of five students statewide who will be featured prominently on the campaign website, promiseoregon.org

The “Promise” campaign is coordinated by the Oregon School Boards Association (OSBA).
