Name of creator
Jane Hackett was part-time student at Loyola College (now Concordia University) in the 1960s and later joined the department of Student Services in 1969. Between 1974 and 1978, she worked successively at Student Services’ Campus Information Centre, the Off-Campus Housing Office, and Hingston Hall’s Ancillary Services. In 1979, she joined the Dean of Students Office first as secretary to the Dean and in 1998, as assistant to the Dean. In 2004, she was administrative assistant at Student Services. Hackett retired from Concordia in May 2009 shortly after receiving the CCSL award for outstanding staff contribution.
A talented singer and actress, Hackett was involved as a student and employee in Thé-Arts Loyola, a company compose of students, staff and faculty that presented Broadway musicals from 1972 to 1975. The group originated from the Loyola Musical Theatre a company that did musical lunchtime theatre at the F.C. Smith Auditorium. The company’s director was Maxim Mazumdar, a graduate in Communication Arts (BA 1972). Thé-Arts’ finest hour was a critically acclaimed production in 1972 of Cole Porter’s musical Anything Goes, in which Jane Hackett starred with Brian Counihan, who would later become Dean of Students at Concordia University and Nancy Stewart, who also worked at Concordia in the Office of Faculty Personnel. Thé-Arts Loyola also participated in the Quebec Drama Festival and won several awards.
Hackett is a member of the The Lyric Theatre, one of Montreal’s longest-standing community theatre companies, which celebrated its 50th Anniversary in 2015.
