Lauren Pritchard Cobb Selected As City Of Jackson Selects Second Hub City Hero
Lauren Pritchard Cobb has been selected as the February “Hub City Hero” for her commitment to feeding children in Madison County through her work with RIFA’s snack backpack program.
“Lauren is extremely talented, and we are fortunate that she also has a heart for giving,” said Mayor Scott Conger. “She is an advocate for fighting food insecurity in our city and inspires us by frequently hosting community concerts to raise funds for RIFA.”
Pritchard is from Jackson, Tenn. and is known as the musical artist LOLO. She is not only a show-stopping singer, but also a venerable songwriter. She has penned hits for Panic! At the Disco’s recent #1 blockbuster album and has written a New York Times raved about off-Broadway musical, “Songbird.” Her career has taken her to the stages of New York and London and she recently moved back to Tennessee with her husband and son.
“Hub City Heroes” selflessly and steadily give of their time and talent to improve the lives of others in the community. Recognition as a hero is one small way to thank these public servants for their efforts and it gives honorees the opportunity to raise awareness for causes that are important to them.
