Gigi Olguin – Tigard-Tualatin 2
Stand for Children Oregon is proud to endorse Gigi Olguin for school board in Tigard-Tualatin School District zone 2. A product of the Tigard-Tualatin school system, and a young woman of color, Gigi brings a wealth of first-hand knowledge to a school board that can only benefit from more diversity. Her own experiences being homeless in high school demonstrate exactly why – at the time, she didn’t feel comfortable talking to anyone about it because her school wasn’t a place aimed at supporting all students. As the only person of color running in this very competitive board race to represent a population of students that is 26 percent Latinx, the choice is clear for us. We look forward to partnering with Gigi more in the future to ensure every student in Tigard-Tualatin School District receives a high quality education that prepares them for life after high school.
