Description

Christy Day is the director of communications at the West Virginia Center for Professional Development (WVCPD). She holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism and a Master’s of Public Administration from West Virginia University. Her current position at WVCPD affords her the opportunity to work in an area that is dear to her: education. In addition to promoting the mission of the agency, Christy has worked around the state to increase community and family involvement in education in order to enhance achievement among low-income and minority students. She is a liaison between WVCPD and Charleston’s West Side Revive Program which addresses public education, health and economic development in depressed areas of the state. Christy lives in Charleston with her husband of 22 years, Greg Shavers. They have a son who is a sophomore at WVU, a daughter who is a senior at George Washington High School, and an 11-year-old black West Virginia brown dog.
