After 26 years on the job at Hamilton Community Schools, Executive Assistant to the Superintendent, Lori Lohman is set to retire.

Hamilton is in her blood. Not only did Lori graduate from Hamilton High School, her two daughters did as well. However, she says it's time for something new.

"It was a very difficult decision and I'll miss all of the people the most," Lohman said. "I made a lot of friendships, it's hard to walk away from that, but it's time for a new adventure."

Lohman's role in the administration office has changed over the years. Originally serving as a secretary at the front desk, her role grew into pupil accounting, community engagement, and lead secretary of the district, as well as overseeing student onboarding and processes.

"Day-to-day, my job has been different every day, which is what I've loved about it," she added. "And it has changed so much, the pupil accounting part is really fun for me. I enjoy working through the data and spreadsheets."

As the head of community engagement, Lori oversaw the district community events, including the inaugural Hawkeye Hometown Tailgate in 2021, inaugural 5K in April of 2023, and Academic Basketball nights in the winter.

"It has been super fun to see how the community has rallied around these events. How businesses have financially supported these events is awesome over the past few years."

Lori's final day on the job is February 29.

"Hamilton Community Schools says it all, because it is a community, it's a family here, no matter if you go to school here, work here, or live here, it's a close-knit community and that makes all the difference in the world for a place you work."

Thank you for everything, Lori. You will be missed!
