Campus Champion

Susan Wilson champions student growth and well-being, whether she’s helping recreation majors in her adapted recreation classes, supporting softball team members who strive to balance athletic competition with academic success, or guiding students whose unwise choices land them in the College’s judicial system, her colleagues say. She devotes hours to sharing her scholarly discipline, cheering on the softball team and counseling those at risk of leaving the College. Her quiet service is rewarded with an extended “softball family” of graduates.
