2014 Distinguished Service Award

Susan McCormack

Almost 25 years ago, Susan McCormack came to our College from the Physics Department on a satellite project assignment. When the project was finished, Dean Sam Hakes said, “Come down to the Dean’s Office and we’ll find something for you to do.” Three deans, five associate deans, and thousands of students later, she has never been bored, and still enjoys the crank-it-up-a-notch pace her job demanded.

Susan McCormack

She has worn many hats in her position, including but not limited to, a 16-year stint producing the College’s quarterly, Foresight; coordinating two commencement ceremonies each year; coordinating, for 15 years, the Engineering Summer Program for high school juniors; being a salesman for the College with prospective students and their parents; making sure that students completed their graduation requirements in a timely manner; and just being there for anyone who needed an understanding ear.  She retired from her position in May, 2014.

In 2005, Wayman Wing (BSCE/’47) and his wife, Eugenia, endowed a scholarship in Susan’s name, citing her “dedication, enormous energy, and efficient manner.” Susan considered it a privilege to have been a part of so many lives – resulting in invitations to weddings, exchanging of Christmas cards, notifications of new additions to families, etc.  She always refers to the current students and alumni as “her kids”... no matter what their ages.
