Susan Melchior

“If you looked up the word ‘volunteer’ in the dictionary, it would say ‘Sue Melchior,’” or so says the person who nominated Susan Melchior for the Beacon Award. Her volunteer work in Clinton includes helping the First Church of Christ, Pretty Committee, Historical Society, Food Pantry/Soup Kitchen, Meals on Wheels, and Arbor Garden Club. She also makes sure that the seniors in her life, including her 100 year-old friend and 95 year-old mother, are well taken care of. “I’m honored that I’m getting this award, but it also involves others besides myself,” she says.
