Oregon State Treasurer Ted Wheeler will address graduates and guests at the 2013 Clatsop Community College Commencement Ceremony, Friday, June 14, at 7:00p.m. in the Liberty Theater. A large graduating class is anticipated, and seating is limited.
Since being appointed and then elected in 2010, Mr. Wheeler has directed efforts to implement money-saving technologies, strengthened access to data, authorized fraud lawsuits against firms that misled investors, earned an upgrade in Oregon’s credit rating and revamped the Oregon 529 College Savings Network with lower costs and more options for families. He has convened business leaders and spearheaded a statewide blueprint for economic development, the Oregon Investment Act, which was approved in 2012.
Wheeler is a sixth-generation Oregonian. The town of Wheeler located on Nehalem Bay is named after his great-grandfather.
"Treasurer Wheeler understands and supports the connection between higher education and upward mobility, and we are honored that he will be sharing this important milestone for CCC students and their families," says CCC President Lawrence Galizio.
