An Advocate for Literary Excellence
Can you imagine where we would be as Americans if education and literacy were not at the forefront of our existence?
It is a well-known fact that education is the backbone of success. Without education we wouldn’t be able to enjoy its many benefits. Practically everything that we utilize to enhance our standard of living is a direct result of someone’s desire to educate themselves, learn something new and apply it in a way that benefits mankind.
Aristotle once said, ”Education is an ornament in prosperity and a refuge in adversity.” It enables you to achieve unlimited success, but it also provides a solid foundation on which you can develop great action plans for overcoming life’s challenges.
Carolyn Day’s passion for learning is evident in all that she has accomplished for herself and for others through her work and commitment to administering programs focused on job-readiness, vocational counseling and program evaluation.
She has extensive experience in progressive leadership of education, social services and program development and has served as a consultant in such areas as speech and language therapy, career development and counseling.
Day’s background also includes working with the Chicago Public School Administrative Offices of Specialized Services, High School Programs and the Department of Education to Careers. She has also developed career awareness and exploration activities for grades K-8.
Day has truly dedicated her life to enhancing the literacy experiences of the citizens of Chicago and as the Executive Director of Literary Chicago, her efforts are having a positive impact on their lives. Literary Chicago is a non-profit organization that empowers individuals to achieve greater self sufficiency through language and literacy instruction.
