After graduating from IWA, Sue received her BA in Speech and Communications, had three wonderful children, Christina, John and Lisa, returned to college, and received her MAT in Education and MS in Science. She became the Director of Recreation for the Marriott Hotels & Resorts and before retiring, spent eighteen years in high school administration and fundraising for Incarnate Word Academy and Chaminade College Preparatory School. Since her retirement in 2003, she has traveled the world with her husband, Don. As a current IWA trustee, it is Sue’s privilege to ensure that the Academy lives its mission for all young women who chose to be ‘women of the word.’ Currently, Sue enjoys sharing her fundraising skills with non-profit, low-budget organizations including: Sherwood Forest Camp, Missouri EnergyCare, and the Marianist Retreat & Conference Center. Sue has also followed her passion to serve nationwide endeavors dedicated to the establishment of permanent, cultural museums that celebrate the diversity of the people of our United States of America. Twenty-five years ago, she recognized the importance of preserving the life histories of the Jewish people who immigrated to our country far away from torture and death. The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum was dedicated in 1993. Her next endeavor drew her to the people who worked our land long before many of our ancestors were born. In recognition of our numerous Indian tribes, The National Museum of the American Indian opened its doors in 2004. Just three months ago, the President of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Project, Harry E. Johnson, Sr., announced: "We have officially received the building permit and can begin construction." These memorial museums, all located in our nation’s capitol, pay tribute to all of us who believe in "all people under God with liberty and justice for all."
