Third “Promise” video features Jordan Valley High student

Nick Eiguren, a senior at Jordan Valley High School (Jordan Valley School District), is featured in the third in a series of student videos that debuted today as part of “The Promise of Oregon” campaign (www.promiseoregon.org).

In the video, Nick talks about the advantages of growing up in a small, rural town. An outstanding student and competitive rodeo roper, he hopes one day to run the family ranch. But first comes college, where he intends to study sports medicine.

“I think that it’s going to be scary and hard at first to move from eastern Oregon,” he says. “But school has really pointed me in the right direction.”

The “Promise” campaign, being coordinated by OSBA, is based on two defining principles: Today’s students are Oregon’s greatest natural resource, and we as Oregonians must invest in public schools so the next generation can reach its potential.
