$10,000 of higher education scholarships to be awarded
PORTLAND — Dr. Joe Robertson, along with nine finalist organizations, highlight the 2016 Oregon Ethics in Business Awards dinner at the Portland Art Museum on June 7. Nina Mehlhaf, weekend anchor for KGW TV, will act as Master of Ceremonies for the evening.
“This is the 14th year of Oregon Ethics in Business in partnership with the Rotary Club of Portland and Rotary clubs across the state. We are pleased to have included scholarship awards to Oregon students over the past 2 years and are continuing to expand our vision of ethics in business,” said Dev Dion, Chairman of the Oregon Ethics in Business Committee.
$10,000 in higher education scholarships will be awarded as well to five students, representing each of the five congressional districts in Oregon. The five students will receive $2,000 each provided to Oregon Ethics in Business through a grant from the Portland Charitable Trust.
The Oregon Ethics in Business (OEIB) Awards honor those organizations and individuals who have demonstrated ethical business practice in its broadest interpretation: In the workplace, the marketplace, the environment, and the community. The recipients of these awards will have, by act and example, gone beyond the expected to achieve excellence in ethical business practices.

Large business — Leupold & Stevens, Inc and Logical Position
Small Business — David H. Sutherland & Co, Inc, Nossa Familia Coffee, Gigi’s Café, and Green Drop Garage
