Lori Nickerson and her family moved to Hopkinton in 2012 with the desire for a tight knit community with excellent schools for her 6 year old, 3.5 year old and 11 month old. Lori explained she found exactly what she was looking for: "I love the community, I love the passion in the community, we moved here 2 years ago, looking for a tight knit community...It was great education and excellent schools...but on top of the fact, that the community has been so welcoming, I just felt the need to give back that passion to the community, and this seemed like a perfect opportunity for me to provide my assistance and my skills on the education side...especially because education has always been so important to me ".
Lori believes her variety of business experience will be a great benefit to the school committee, she explained her skillset in her nomination announcement: "I have over 12 years of legal and business experience working as a Senior Corporate Counsel for multiple public companies. As a legal advisor and business partner to my clients, I work within tight budgetary and legal constraints to achieve successful outcomes for my company’s stockholders. Similarly, the School Committee must act on behalf of all Hopkinton citizens to evaluate the schools’ administrators, provide sound financial planning, process improvement and innovation. My experience, coupled with my passion to keep Hopkinton’s schools strong, will help me bring new ideas and solutions to the School Committee in order to achieve their goal of finalizing a sound Strategic Plan".
Lori explained what she would like to do if elected to the School Committee: "As a member of the School Committee, my primary goals will be: 1) to finalize the Strategic Plan; 2) improve upon and align the budget process with the Strategic Plan; and 3) foster an environment of innovative problem-solving in order to ensure fiscal management and delivery of the best educational programs for all grade levels."
"The citizens of Hopkinton have a passion for the schools as well as for the town overall. I share that passion and I would consider it a privilege to serve on the School Committee to help ensure that each and every child continues to receive the type of education that makes our schools a model for other towns. I respectfully ask for your vote on May 19th." - Lori Nickerson
