Dallas High grad honored by BPA
PORTLAND -- Former Dallas resident Jon Dull was recently presented with one of Bonneville Power Administration's highest honors as part of the Administrator's Excellence Awards program.
Dull, manager of BPA's Debt and Investment Management section, received the Administrator's Exceptional Service Award, which recognizes superior service and achievement.
Dull most recently championed development of a new source of funding -- a program that allows some of BPA's public utility customers to prepay a portion of their future purchases from BPA. This innovative approach provides up-front funding for critically needed BPA investments that preserve the value of the aging Federal Columbia River Power System.
Dull, who has worked for BPA for 12 years, is a 1993 graduate of Dallas High School and holds an MBA in finance and a bachelor's degree in business economics, both from Willamette University in Salem.
Wells Fargo offering ATM donations
DALLAS -- Wells Fargo ATMs in Oregon, including the one at the Dallas branch at 636 Main St., are once again serving as Community Support Machines.
This gives customers the opportunity to donate to five selected regional nonprofit groups at any of Wells Fargo's 231 ATMs in Oregon. The free service allows customers to anonymously give from one penny up to $249.99 in a single transaction. Donations are debited directly from the donor's account and sent electronically to the nonprofit organization the customer chooses.
The customer is not charged any fee for using the service; 100 percent of the donation is sent to the nonprofit.
Wells Fargo is currently partnering with these nonprofits for this program: Mercy Corps, Oregon Food Bank, Oregon Mentors, Start Making a Reader Today (SMART) and Freshwater Trust.
