Lorraine Lupini’s passion for nurturing young learners propelled her 32-year career in public education. Although now retired, Lorraine maintains the same drive, using the knowledge she gained as an elementary teacher, reading specialist and reading supervisor to inform her work with community organizations. Experience within her own family has also motivated Lorraine to become an advocate for the elderly. In her role on The Wright Center for Community Health’s Patient Engagement Council, she assists with children’s programs and brings awareness to the barriers that many geriatric patients face in transportation, healthcare appointments, medication reminders and companionship.
Other boards Lorraine has served on include the Scranton Lackawanna Human Development Agency’s Head Start Program Advisory Board (1992-94) and the Northeastern Pennsylvania Reading Association, as a representative from Valley View School District (1987-2004). When she has time, Lorraine enjoys a range of activities, from dancing and playing piano, to bowling and tennis. She also loves to read, knit, crochet and speak Italian.
