Susan Jane Horan '59
Susan "Sue" J. Horan '59 grew up in Garden City, New York. As a child, Sue contracted polio and also broke her knee so that she walked with a limp. Her positive attitude gave her the ability to overcome her difficulties and thrive in college and throughout her life. At Mary Washington College, Sue majored in economics and business administration and served as a staff writer for the Bullet newspaper. Sue moved to San Francisco after graduation and took a job with an advertising agency. Sue was marketing director for Spice Islands and when the company was sold, became a property manager. She remained in California, living in the Roseville area until her death in 2014. Sue fondly remembered her time at Mary Washington and established this scholarship through her estate to encourage and help Mary Washington students at a time when they need it the most.
