The Columbia Gorge Education Council is a group of citizens, representing all facets of our community, interested in directing the future of education in our county, particularly post-secondary education.
Our mission is to identify, implement and oversee access to education and workforce training for Hood River and Wasco County residents.
Attend a meeting
We meet every other month to discuss ideas and ways to identify, implement and promote post-secondary education. We all believe the future of our community and economy will be affected by the education of our citizens.
Anyone is welcome to attend.
