OnPoint Community Credit Union, based in Portland, Oregon, has announced the four winners of the 2023 OnPoint Prize for Excellence in Education Educator of the Year awards.

The four Educators of the Year — from schools in Redmond, Portland, and Milwaukie — will have their mortgage or rent paid for one year and receive $2,500 for each of their schools.

“Educators have a profound impact on their students, as well as their entire community,” said Rob Stuart, president and chief executive officer, OnPoint Community Credit Union. “This year’s Educators of the Year respect their students as individuals and create educational experiences that truly connect and inspire them. We are honored to recognize these educators and know they will continue to make a difference for their students and our region.”
