Recognizing Outstanding Contributions

Congratulations to the 2018 T.H.A.D. Excellence Award recipient: Dr. Jeanne Loyd. Dr. Loyd has been described as “a champion for people with disabilities in her career and her personal life” and someone who “elevates all those around her.” Over a nearly 40-year career, Dr. Loyd worked creatively to move people from dependency to the independence of a career. She strengthened Missouri’s network of community rehabilitation programs, established supported employment services in every Missouri county, developed consumer-directed home and community-based personal care attendant services, facilitated highly accurate and proficient Social Security disability determination, and migrated IT systems within VR. Congratulations Dr. Jeanne Loyd on your lifetime of achievement!
