Oregon Lottery Director Jack Roberts will award $2,000 to the Chemeketa Community College Foundation’s Child Care Scholarship Fund at Chemeketa Community College’s STARS Reception. The money will be used to provide assistance to parents attending Chemeketa.
“Oregon community colleges make an important economic and social impact in their communities,” said Lottery Director Jack Roberts. “By offering the many specialized, associate degrees that allow many adult Oregonians to improve their lives, they are helping students of all ages acquire new skills or potentially change careers.”
The event will be held tomorrow, May 8, beginning at 3:30 p.m. at Broadway Commons, located in Salem at 1300 Broadway St. NE.
The Oregon Lottery is taking part in community college events across the state to help communicate its message about funding education, and the importance that Oregonians place on education.
The Oregon Lottery is the event’s Gold Star presenting sponsor.
Since the Oregon Lottery began selling tickets on April 25, 1985, it has earned over $9 billion for economic development, public education, state parks and watershed enhancements. For more information on the Oregon Lottery visit www.oregonlottery.org.
