Day will be responsible for managing Sea Grant's education program, coordinating Sea Grant educational activities with NOAA and other Federal agencies and organizations, and providing leadership for the Dean John A. Knauss Marine Policy Fellowship Program.
"Dr. Day has more than 10 years of experience coordinating marine education programs and providing marine science content to a wide variety of students," said Ronald Baird, director of the National Sea Grant College Program at NOAA Research headquarters in Silver Spring. "We're very happy to have her join Sea Grant's national program office."

Prior to joining Sea Grant, Day was an
assistant program director for ocean science education at the
National Science Foundation. During her varied career, Day has
