Susan King was nominated by her friend, Jane Abbott Sweat.
Mrs. King has been in a position of leadership in her school as a union member, committee member, and mentor to paraprofessionals. Students have left her classroom with the best education she could give them and help them acquire. Throughout her years as a teacher, school community member, and resident of Goshen when it was a shared school, she has demonstrated her concern about what's best for students. She took graduate courses which helped her to create a curriculum that incorporated history, writing, geography and social studies in the area. That way, her students could learn more about the history of their families and communities. Her students used writing and interviews to produce an interesting product enjoyed by families and saved for the communities of Goshen and Lempster's historical societies.
