For Laurie Cremona Wagner, it's always been about education and workforce development. Growing up in a family of teachers, Laurie knows that a quality education and access to career training is how we build a brighter future for everyone in Oregon.

Laurie is ready to work and qualified to serve on the Board at Portland Community College.

A passionate advocate of elevating workforce training across Oregon, Laurie was appointed by Governor Kate Brown to the Oregon Workforce Talent and Development Board.

Laurie and her husband, Rob, are raising four amazing children. Zack and Mia are completing their senior year, Carlo is a sophomore, and Alex is a freshman -- all at Lake Oswego High School. They are excited to get back in the classroom with their teachers and friends when vaccines are distributed and students are able to safely return to school.
