Gladys Lodes

My name is Gladys Lodes and I moved to Clayton from New York City in 2016 shortly after the birth of my second grandchild. I began my career in corporate America in 1973 and worked in offices throughout downtown and midtown Manhattan. During this time my favorite pastimes included exposing my children to the rich and vibrant culture of the city through adventures to Broadway and the many museums. As much as I loved those chapters of my life, I feel extremely blessed to be living in Clayton near my three children (Jamie, Melissa and Richard) and my four grandchildren (Kayleigh, Jacob, Julia and Hudson). For the past three years I have been able to bring my grandchildren to Hocutt Baptist preschool each morning and pick them up each afternoon. I am excited to begin a new chapter as a part of the Hocutt family!
