Three Oregon university students will present research findings April 24 at the Oregon Heritage Conference in North Bend. The presentations will begin at 2:30 p.m. in the Salmon Room of the The Mill Hotel, 3201 Tremont St., and are free and open to the public.

The three students have been named Oregon Heritage Fellows by Oregon Heritage, a division of the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department, based on the strength of both their scholastic achievement and their research topics. The fellowships encourage the thoughtful inquiry of Oregon's heritage by emerging scholars.

"The Fellows conduct original research into the diverse history of Oregon, often on topics that have drawn less attention from more-experienced historians," explains Chrissy Curran, assistant director with the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department.  "We believe it is important that their research is presented to the public."

The Fellows, their schools and topics are:

            Gennie Nguyen, University of Oregon. "Revisiting Vanport and Albina's Multicultural History."

            David-Paul Hedberg, Portland State University. "Wilson Charley, protector of the 20th century Columbia River: Indigenous Leader, Environmental Activist and Conservationist."

            Cayla Hill, Oregon State University. "The Expansion of Catholicism: An Archeological Exploration of St. Joseph's College, the first Catholic boarding school for boys within the Oregon Territory."

Eliza Canty-Jones, editor of the Oregon Historical Quarterly, will moderate the session.

The Oregon Heritage Conference April 22-24 brings together staff and volunteers from historical societies, historic landmark commissions, schools and universities, humanities groups, local and state agencies, museums, tourism and economic development organizations, federal agencies and tribal governments.
