A Champion of the Northern Region
One of the Northern Region’s most consistent advocates has been Corinne Cascadden, who recently retired as Superintendent of the Berlin School System. Her dedication and spirit inspired students across the community to embrace education and leverage the opportunities it brings.
Corinne is a strong partner with Granite United Way, and worked diligently to bring the innovative silent reading program, Reading Plus®, to middle and high school students across the district. This program has been incredibly successful in improving literacy skills in students, with hundreds of students improving two content levels. In just one academic year 20 students went from off-track to on track in reading.
Corinne served the region as an elementary school principal for over 20 years and as superintendent for 10 years. This year Granite United Way proud to present Corinne with the LIVE UNITED Award during their Northern Region Celebration.
“Granite United Way is fortunate to have such an advocate for education in our Northern Region,” said Laura Boucher, Northern Region Manager. “Her dedication to education and the students in our community will undoubtedly affect generations of Northern Region families.”
