Dear Friends of London City Schools,
It is with great sadness that I share the news of the passing of Carol Daniels.
Carol 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 at the end of the 1986 - 1987 school year. Carol returned quickly to LCS as an elementary principal in August of 1987, a position she held for the past 30 years. 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 Jennings Scholar in 1987, but it was her tireless advocacy for the kids of London, which set her apart.
As I shared during our last staff day, I held great admiration for Carol and learned a great deal about leadership, humility, and loyalty from her. While her loss may be great, so was her contribution to our school district and community.
My thoughts and prayers go out to Jerry and her family and by extension our community. Once arrangements are known, we will share with all of you.
Dr. Lou Kramer
