Clark Creek Elementary School STEM Academy Volunteer and Partner of the Year 2017-2018
Clark Creek Elementary School STEM Academy: Suzanne Everette
The children at Clark Creek Elementary School STEM Academy love their “Grandma Suzie,” or, as she’s known to grown-ups, Suzanne Everette. She volunteers seven hours a day, every day, to support arts classes and care for the school’s 1,180 students, as only a grandma can. In the Principal’s words: “Some don’t understand why she comes in like she does, but she responds that she loves it, and it brings her great joy. The students are joyful that she spends her days with us, too.”
