BOD-Susie-Stark

Profile of Susie Stark, Plus 60 Board Member

Retired school Math teacher: 10 years at JB Young Junior High, 23 years at West High School, 12 years at Rocky High School ( including 2 years at BH College)

I am a person who likes to stay involved in events that are fun and help others. I always thought Plus 60 is a good organization and would like to get more of the members involved in different activities that they would like to see implemented in the Quad Cities.

While at West High School, besides teaching, I was in charge of Student Senate for 10 years. During that time, I did many different events to raise money for local charities: held variety shows, trivia tournaments, euchre tournaments, fun nights where we invited all the feeder elementary school, car washes, and many more. Each month I would have the students prepare food for the local homeless shelter. The biggest fundraiser I did was the Student Hunger Drive. I tried to get the entire student body involved in the events we did to raise money to buy food for the food pantry or to go door to door collecting food for the hunger drive. It was an awesome sight to see so many students involved. The last year I did Student Senate we had enough food collected to fill 7 semi loads!! West alone raised over 310,000 pounds of food to be delivered to the Food Bank.

While teaching I also got involved with several non-profit organizations. CASI, Battered Shelter for Woman, to name a few. I am still involved with a group called “The Hearts of the Quad-Cities”, which is a group of women that make the centerpieces for the non-profit fundraisers in the Quad Cities. I put together baskets for Silent Auctions for events like, CASI-Holiday Hat Bash, Make A Wish Foundation, Blue Grass Fireman’s Ball, Bettendorf Rotary, etc.

I am married to Russ, a retired project manager electrician from DECCO. In Denver lives my son, Nathan and his wife, Wendy. Grandchildren, Addie-9 and Tiernan-7. In Davenport lives my son, Zachary and his wife, Callie. Grandchild, Vaughn-5 months.

Thank you for the opportunity to serve on the Board of Plus 60.
