1ST INDUCTEE TO THE CHS HALL OF FAME
Suzanne Gardner Stott brings 31 years experience to the area of special needs adoption -- as a volunteer, foster parent, adoptive parent and as a Professional Adoption Consultant. She has helped in small and large ways with the placement of 3500 children into waiting families. She is a frequent presenter at Adoption Conferences and seminars and has been recognized by her peers and received many awards for her work in preparing families to adopt children with special needs, including 'Child Advocate of the Year,' and the 'Congressional Angel in Adoption' award. In 2012 she was honored to received the Pioneer of Progress award from the Days of '47 Committee.
Since 1984, she has been continually involved in helping refugees adjust to life in Utah and has been recognized with awards, such as 'Hero of the City.' She has also been fortunate to complete humanitarian service in Taiwan, Cambodia, and India.
Suzanne's life proves that you don't have to have a lot of talent, time, or money to offer service to your Community. Her best efforts are spent in trying to be a good parent, grandparent and a caring member of her neighborhood and Community. She attends her local Community Council Meeting each month, volunteers in neighborhood causes, and votes at every election! She is a voracious reader, a dedicated Trekkie and her current culinary interest is learning to make Palestinian dishes.
I greatly anticipate the CHS Alumni event.
