Laura was known for her playful antics, often dressing up as a shark or a banana to make her students laugh. But her remarkable journey was marked by a battle with ovarian cancer, which she fought courageously since 2019.
Throughout her illness, Laura continued to come to school, determined to greet her students even on her toughest days. She offered a unique course on the “psychology of music” and united students from ten different towns to form a collaborative performance group.
Tragically, Laura passed away on May 24, 2023, at the age of 37, leaving a void at Nashoba Tech. In her memory, a heartfelt tribute unfolded during a recent football game. Coaches, cheerleaders, and a visiting marching band wore teal pins to symbolize support for her battle against cancer. Nashoba Tech’s Athletic Director, Stacy Coccia, wore a shirt reading “Live like Laura” to honour her.
Former student, Athena Scarmeas had the honour of performing the national anthem at the game, as Laura had taught her to play the piano and sing simultaneously.
A great Impact
Laura’s impact extended beyond the classroom. She used to perform with the school’s marching band during hockey games.

Even though Laura is no longer with them physically, her memory continues to inspire. Her family, together with Nashoba Tech’s staff, is working on establishing the Dr. Laura Lamore Memorial Scholarship, a fitting way to assist students, just as Laura did throughout her incredible career.
