Loomis House Administrator, Lori Todd is being recognized by the Women’s Business Owners Alliance with the Quiet Achiever Award. For seventeen years, Ms. Todd has quietly volunteered as the artistic director and choreographer for the Holyoke High School Spring Musical. Planning and rehearsals take place five nights a week from January to the end of March. She works with a small team of dedicated volunteers who also assist the musical director with staging, diction and choreography. “It gives me great pleasure to pay forward the gifts I was given by Broadway dancer parents and continue to spread the love of music, dance and stage craft to high school students. It is hard work but rewarding when the show opens and the auditorium is full, not just from members of the high school but the greater Holyoke community. Many in the community generously support our efforts.”
