One of Lori Massman’s favorite quotes is “The heart of a volunteer is not measured in size but by the depth of the commitment to make a difference in the lives of others.” – DeAnn Hollis
A community development manager who’s worked for Scholastic for more than 30 years, she’s also very involved in her hometown that she describes as a very giving community.
Born and raised in Jefferson City, she’s a proud alumni of the Jefferson City Public Schools, JCPS, and serves on the Public School Foundation Board of Directors and the JC Alive Alumni Board. A huge advocate of the United Way and its partner agencies, she’s currently serving on the United Way Executive Board and Board of Directors.
When she’s not working or volunteering, she enjoys spending time with her friends and family. She and her husband, Leroy, have been married for 15 years and have four children – three boys and one girl – and one grandson.
“Being a mom is one of my most proudest things in life,” Lori said. “We are so blessed and we have a terrific son-in-law and two daughter-in-laws, too. We are very blessed.”

To complete the look, she used the Twilight eye shadow pallet for her lids and brows and added a pop of color to her lips in Wild Fushia.
Clothing – Since Lori is a “jeans & T-shirt” kind of gal, we didn’t want to take her too far out of her comfort zone, so we tried to soften the look with a Simply Noelle thermal weave snap top underneath a soft knit Aztec print Kimono, trimmed with Venice Lace. A simple long necklace with coral colored beads was added for a tiny touch of bling.
