Saving the stories of the past is no easy feat but for local historian Loydell Seward it’s an achievement that has been accomplished with a lifetime of service and dedication.

Seward was recently awarded the Distinguished Service Award by the Collin County Commissioners for her work with the Collin County Historical Commission.

After 20 years of service to the historical commission, Seward is retiring from the organization.

Starting her volunteer work in 1997 with the commission, the history lover found her home helping prepare tours of historical sites throughout Collin County.

Being a second grade teacher professionally throughout her life Seward has always loved history and stated she could have easily been a college history professor if not for having to take on the additional educational requirements while raising a family of her own.
