Fiona Casida, K-12 Library & Media Coordinator for the Copley-Fairlawn School District was selected as one of 22 new Lilead Fellows from a competitive, nationwide pool of applicants. The Lilead Fellows Program is a unique, nationally recognized professional development opportunity designed to empower, enable, and equip school district library supervisors to think differently and creatively about library programs and education and to be effective and inspirational leaders in their districts. The Fellows work collaboratively with peers and mentors from districts across the country. They are charged with thinking critically and differently about the impact school libraries can make on all members of their school communities. The 22 new Fellows announced on April 10th join the first cohort of 25 Fellows, who began the program in January 2015.
