BOE - Lou Daniels

Lou Daniels, BOE ChairBoard of Education, Chair


I am a CT native growing up in Meriden and a product of their public school system K-12.  I met my wife Amy at Providence College where we both graduated from and continue to maintain strong ties.  Over 36 years ago Amy and I found the charm and allure of Canton and settled here to raise our four children.  We are proud of the education our children received through the Canton schools K-12; all were active participants in curricular and non-curricular activities.  Today we are fortunate that two of our children returned to Canton to live and raise their families; of our seven grandchildren, three are attending school in Canton.

 I was elected to the Board in November making this my second time serving on the BOE.  As a passionate volunteer I have served on the Board of Selectman, Canton Education Foundation, Dollars for Scholars and the Chamber of Commerce to name a few.  My hope is to use my past experiences, my knowledge of the town and my extensive business background to help make our schools a little better every year.

For the last 11 years my full-time employment has been as Chief Executive Officer for a tele-health company headquartered in Avon.  The majority of my career was spent in the area of employee benefits as a senior manager for Marsh, Wells Fargo and Willis.

My joy has always been in coaching.  I have coached at many levels including high school football for many years and then practically every sport my children and now grandchildren play.  Canton is a great place to live!
