The Promise of Oregon

The Oregon School Boards Association, a non-profit member services organization based in Salem, founded “The Promise of Oregon” campaign in 2014 to focus attention on the accomplishments of Oregon’s K-14 students and the need to adequately fund public education. Through its photographs, videos, and stories, the campaign highlights the aspirations of students and demonstrates their incredible accomplishments and potential. 


St. Helens School District will be one of four districts featured in this year’s Promise campaign. Starting on January 3, 2023, students will be featured each week on the campaign website, explaining in their own words why they represent the Promise of Oregon.


In addition, students and school board members from the Oregon Trail, St. Helens, Brookings-Harbor, and North Marion districts are featured in a new video showing what school board members do. It can be seen HERE and includes two St. Helens School District board members, Melody Killens and Bill Amos.


Superintendent Stockwell said the district’s support of “The Promise of Oregon” campaign is an important step in raising awareness about the value of public education in shaping the next generation of Oregon’s leaders, workers, and citizens.  


OSBA provides services to more than 200 locally elected boards serving school districts, education service districts, and community colleges.
