Lennoxville’s special night – see more pages 3, 4 and 7 Donald-patrick Award Susan Cook
Susan was born in Asbestos in 1961. She went to school in Danville and graduated from Richmond Regional School. At the time of graduation, her two older siblings were continuing their education and true to her nature, she told her mother that she was going to go to work to help her. Susan’s father Wendall had passed away a few years before.
She went to work for the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce in Montreal. She also worked for this bank in Windsor and in Lennoxville.
In July 2009, she decided to buy a house on Speid Street in Lennoxville. How lucky
Lennoxville was! She immediately became involved in the community. She joined the Friendship Day Committee in 2010 and helped her son organize security for the parade and the day itself. She has been on several different Friendship Day organizing committees in 2011 and 2012.
When the Lennoxville Street Festival started she volunteered her help; she volunteers at the library and helps with meals at the Hut, organized for different organizations. She now works at Bishop’s College School and has been involved in placing students in different organizations in a volunteer capacity so they earn points for the Duke of Edinburg Medal.
She organizes the BCS students for the Lennoxville Spring Clean up and they have become a yearly presence. At 5 a.m. on weekday mornings, she can be seen delivering The
Record or a little later, riding her bike to work.
She has three children: Joshua who attends Dawson College, Nicolas who attends Champlain College, and Jessica.
