Loveland studied dance and nonprofit leadership at Western Michigan University and has served as public affairs director at Jackson County Chamber of Commerce since 2021.

“The team at Jackson School of the Arts deserves an abundance of recognition for the growth they have managed over the past two decades. JSA has become a staple in this community, and it’s an honor to step in as Executive Director and contribute to the positive impact it’s having on the lives of Jackson families, no matter what their financial means,” Loveland shared about the transition.

Prior to her role at the Chamber, she served as youth program director at the Jackson Area Manufacturers Association.

“The board of directors and management team are excited to have Amanda joining our team at the JSA. Amanda’s wealth of knowledge in the non-profit arena as well as her experience working in the Jackson Community will be a great asset to this amazing organization, and will direct our team in taking the JSA to the next level of excellence” states Board Co-Chair, Philip J. Curtis.

Located at 135 West Corland Street, the school provides art, dance, theater, gymnastics and Tae Kwon Do, and offers subsidized fees based on household income. Visit jacksonarts.org.
