McCracken lecture series begins Friday
Alumna Linda Gray Reed to serve as keynote speaker  

Sep 14, 2009  

Ohio University alumna Linda Gray Reed will kick off the 2009-10 McCracken Education Lecture Series on Friday with her lecture, "School District Reform in the Facebook Generation."

The speech will take place at 11:30 a.m. in McCracken Hall, room 214 A/B, and is free and open to the public. Lunch will be provided.

Reed has served in many teaching, principal and school administration roles during her accomplished career. She taught for one year in Portsmouth, Ohio, and for nine years in Cincinnati in the Deer Park Community School District. During that time, she was part of the Miami University Excellence in Teaching Task Force and was recognized as Special Education Teacher of the Year for Hamilton County.

In 1986, she moved to California, where she continued to teach special education before becoming a principal. In 2000, while she was principal, her school was named one of only 12 high performing, high poverty schools in the state. The next year, the Los Angeles County Office of Education hired Reed to serve as a coach for principals of under-performing schools in the county.

In 2006, Reed retired from the California education system and moved to Colorado, where she now serves as assistant superintendent for curriculum and assessment for the Archuleta School District 50 Joint in Pagosa Springs.

Each quarter during the academic year, the McCracken Education Lecture Series features a guest speaker who is an advocate of education. Over the years, many graduates of the College of Education have served as the keynote speaker.
