Governor John Kitzhaber has appointed several community leaders to a Education Investment Team. They will begin laying the foundation for an education system connecting programs from early childhood, through higher education. Two of those members hail from Central Oregon. Michael Giesen, a Crook County Middle School teacher who was named the National Teacher of the Year in 2008 and Nori Juba, the managing partner of Bend Capital Partners and is on the Bend La Pine School Board.   The Board must be approved by the legislature, but Kitzhaber has launched the temporary team to begin design work immediately.
