Terry Locke

"Thank You" Video of Terry Locke

Teresa (Terry) Locke began her full-time career in Catholic publishing in 1996 when she joined Loyola Press as Marketing Director and National Sales Manager. Terry’s prior experience made her ideal for this initial role, as she had already spent 12 years in corporate marketing and sales at Fisher Scientific and Commodore Computers—as well as several years as a Catholic school teacher, administrator of gifted- and special education programs for public school districts, and principal of St. Jerome’s Catholic School in the Archdiocese of Chicago. Terry steadily rose through the ranks at Loyola Press. In 2000, she was named Vice President of Marketing & New Product Development; in 2006, Chief Operating Officer and Associate Publisher. And in 2010, Terry was named President of Loyola Press, breaking the glass ceiling by becoming the first female president of a Jesuit Publishing house. Terry retired in 2017. While at the Press, Terry guided the organization’s growth and expansion into new markets, including overseeing the creation of Ignatian-inspired core catechetical programs in English and Spanish (Finding God and God’s Gift); the establishment of a full line of spirituality titles for adults; the construction of Loyola Press’s first websites and blogs; and the publication of two New York Times’ Bestsellers, The Gift of Peace and Dear Pope Francis.

Catherine Upchurch

"Thank You" Audio of Cackie Upchurch

Catherine “Cackie” Upchurch retired from the Diocese of Little Rock in 2019 after a pioneering career in the field of Catholic biblical ministry, including over twenty years as the director of Little Rock Scripture Study. Cackie earned a B.A. in Theology from the Franciscan University of Steubenville and an M.A. in Theology from the University of St. Michael’s College (Toronto, Ontario). After teaching high school religion for several years, she joined the staff of Little Rock Scripture Study at the Diocese of Little Rock in 1989 as associate director. Cackie became the director of LRSS in 1998. In 2001, at the invitation of Liturgical Press, she joined the editorial board of The Bible Today, a long-running biblical journal serving an audience of biblically literate Catholics. She served as an associate editor of that publication until 2022. Cackie’s published work includes several books and study guides for Little Rock Scripture Study, numerous articles for a variety of periodicals including The Arkansas Catholic and The Bible Today, and a current cycle of reflection books for Advent, Lent, and Easter for Liturgical Press. Cackie is the general editor of the Little Rock Catholic Study Bible, a collaboration between LRSS, Liturgical Press, a team of scholars, and the USCCB.
