Keynote Speaker Dr. Margie Daniels

   Dr. Margie M. Daniels is an administrator in the Peekskill City School District with over 20 years of experience in the field of education. As the administrator of Equity and Diversity, she has been afforded the opportunity to grow with the Peekskill City School District in keeping its promise in giving our best for ALL STUDENTS and the PEEKSKILL COMMUNITY.

A lifelong learner, Margie is a graduate of St. John’s University, where she earned her doctorate in 2015. However, she proudly states that she attended and graduated from Westchester Community College, and while there she learned how to be a student and to enjoy what education can open to you.

As a member of a number of civic organizations and social action networks, Margie finds it imperative that she be involved in community action. Only through action and dedication to social justice causes, will we be able to right the wrongs around us.

As the great, Muhammad Ali stated, “Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth,” is what she believes. Margies greatest joy comes from service, and she believes that is a gift God has given her.

A lover of travel and enjoying life to the fullest is Margie's delight! Seeing and experiencing God’s beauty in the world domestically and abroad is fulfilling and something that she encourages young people to do. That’s a passion that Margie loves and continues to bask in.
