The summer cohort of Passport Oregon wrapped up this weekend with a breathtaking trip to the Oregon Coast. The Scholar Athletes hiked and played at Oceanside beach where they explored tide pools, seeing sea creatures such as sea anemones and star fish, played frisbee, built rock towers and sun bathed along side a seal. After that they checked out the historic Cape Mears lighthouse and visited the new and improved Tillamook Cheese Factory. It was a great way to wrap up this round of Passport Oregon trips and we can’t wait to start them again this coming fall. We are thrilled to have taken 24 of our Scholar Athletes on Passport Oregon trips so far this year and look forward to helping facilitate more adventures this fall!
Aaaannnddd we are back!

The chimps toured @uportland last week & saw what it's like to be a college student. Gema & Esme already decided they want to be college roommates.

Alberto, who graduated from the Oregon Connections Academy this past June, received word that he is one of three West Coast recipients (and the ONLY Oregon recipient) of the Donald Lawson Tisdel College Scholarship of $10,000 through the USTA Foundation. Alberto will be able to put his scholarship towards his studies at Portland Community College this Fall where he plans to major in Graphic Design with a Minor in Spanish.
Also, as a recipient of the Oregon Opportunity Grant, Promise Grant, and Pell Grant, Alberto has both years at PCC covered, and will transfer to Portland State University to complete his Bachelors Degree.
Congratulations, Alberto! WE ARE SO PROUD OF YOU!

Last Saturday we went on 6th @passportoregon trip the immaculate Salmon River.
We hiked along the river, climbed trees and skipped stones. It was an enjoyable, educational and relaxing way to spend a Saturday.
