London Elementary planning to make lemonade in grand style
Last September, London Elementary School celebrated its first Lemonade Day in honor of the school’s long time principal, the late Carol Daniels. Mrs. Daniel’s personal mantra was, “If life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” This year the school hopes to celebrate September 13th in grand style, while christening a new memorial to Carol’s honor.

This past May, the London Board of Education approved a proposal from a committee of current and retired educators, along with a few select community members to raise and donate funds for a monument in honor of Mrs. Daniels. The monument, which will be located northwest of the flag poles at London Elementary, will be approximately 6 feet high and will open like a storybook. Inside the “storybook” will be a description of Carol’s life and contributions to London City Schools during her forty-year career.

About Carol Daniels

Carol Daniels was hired as an elementary teacher in the London City School District in 1976. She briefly left the district to become an administrator at Dohron Wilson Elementary School in Mechanicsburg. Mrs. Daniels returned quickly to LCS as an elementary principal in August of 1989, a position she held until she retired at the end of the 2016-2017 school year. During her time with the district, Carol worked with dozens of administrators, hundreds of staff members, and served as a role model to thousands of students many of whom still reside in London. Carol was recognized as a Jennings Scholar in 1987, but it was her tireless advocacy for the kids of London, which set her apart. While her loss was great, so was her contribution to the London City School District and community.
