We are so pleased to introduce you to our new Program Director: Susan Caswell. She is a delight and has taken on this role with her trademark joy and excellence.
She has always tried to be involved in some form of committee/church service and has a desire and obligation to share with those less fortunate. Sue has served on the Community Food Pantry Board, most specifically involved with our efforts to serve children.
Sue has had a dual career, first in healthcare administration and then as an educator. She has taught all levels of students in both private and public schools. She spent her formative years in Turkey. It taught her the value of different cultures and a desire to know people from all over the world.
An interesting tidbit: Sue attended a boys’ prep school in Western Massachusetts. It was at the time when girls’ and boys’ schools had declining enrollments because kids did not want to go to gender specific schools. Five faculty daughters were invited to attend as guinea pigs to see what it was like to have girls on campus. Needless to say, she did not play on the football team. She did mention that the school merged with a nearby girls’ school so they must have been a least somewhat acceptable.
Sue has a wonderful husband Lansing, who is a professor at WAC, a son, Rob, a Thai daughter-in-law, Roj, and a sweet granddaughter, Hannah. She also has four dogs and six cats.
Her hobbies are sewing, cooking, gardening, kayaking, knitting, reading.
We hope you will welcome her with much love.
