District Areas of Special Recognition
MRS. CAROL DANIELS STORYBOOK MEMORIAL
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 1988, 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. A 6-foot high storybook memorial stands in front of London Elementary school in her memory. While her loss was great, so was her contribution to the London City School District and community.
