Heidi Wigman, Jeanne Acker and Jennifer Cooper attend education expo on behalf of Catholic schools.
Metro Parent this fall sponsored an Education Expo attended by approximately 3,000 families looking for options for children. Sixteen Portland-area Catholic elementary schools participated and had a table with information.
"It was a first attempt to market the schools as a whole and a good opportunity for others to see the presence of Catholic education throughout the entire Portland area," says Jeanne Acker, development director from Christ the King School in Milwaukie. Helping Acker tend the table at one point were Heidi Wigman and Jennifer Cooper, teachers at St. Matthew in Hillsboro.
