Harlan Day Receives National Award

Former PCEE Interim Director and Assistant Director, Harlan Day, has been awarded the James O'Neill Economic Education Multiplier Award. This award is presented by the National Association of Economic Educators to an economic educator who has been unusually successful at developing teachers of economics, and beyond that, someone who has inspired these teachers to also be advocates, recruiting other teachers into the economics fold. Day, in the spirit of the award's namesake, multiplied the number of teachers, who further multiplied the number of students impacted by economics. The James O'Neill Economic Education Multiplier Award will be presented at the NAEE professional development meeting or at the annual NAEE meeting.

Dr. Day has been involved in economic education for over 40 years.  In 1997, he became Executive Director of the Indiana Council for Economic Education (ICEE) where he oversaw an active network of 12 university centers for economic education located throughout Indiana.  Day retired from the ICEE in 2011.  In 2015, he acted as the interim director of the PCEE, and then remained as assistant director until June 2017. His contributions to the field of economic education are vast. We congratulate Dr. Day on this well deserved recognition.
