Presenter: Sherry Day
I am the Family Partnership Manager for the LEADS HS/EHS programs, and I oversee the ERSEA and Social Service Component Areas along with Policy Council. I am a proud Head Start Alumni, child graduate from the LEADS program from 1969-1971. I am also a proud past Head Start parent. My son David was also enrolled in the LEADS program in 1991, at the age of 4.
I have been an employee of LEADS serving in many different positions from Substitute Teacher to Management through my 31year tenure, since September 3, 1991. I earned my Associate of Applied Science in Early Childhood Development Technology during my time as a Teacher and Home Visitor in Head Start. I earned my Bachelor of Social Work degree while holding the positions of Family Service Worker and Center Administrator. At the same time, I earned my LSW (Licensed Social Worker) credential from the State of Ohio Counselor, Social Worker, Marriage & Family Therapist Board.
I am honored to be a part of the Head Start Community for so many years, giving back what was given to my family. My grandchildren will never be a part of Head Start but will live with the values and culture that Head Start brings to all of our lives. Head Start Works!!
