So many people work diligently behind the scenes across northwest Missouri, quietly providing leadership, inspiration and hands-on hard work for the future of our children. This morning, we have the opportunity to bring one of these individuals into the limelight.
Each year, the St. Joseph Youth Alliance holds their Superstars for Kids Awards Luncheon. The Superstars for Kids award goes to an individual who has been instrumental in improving lives for children and youth in the St. Joseph community. For 2013, we are proud to say that our very own Susan Campbell received this award!
While it’s difficult enough to start a successful business, Susan founded her company in 2005 and has remained heavily involved in the community as she manages its continual growth. She serves on the board of Hillcrest Transitional Housing, the Missouri Western State University Craig School of Business Council, the United Way Marketing Committee, Eastside Rotary, Youth Alliance Resource Development Committee, and the Mid-Buchanan Booster Club.
Susan also is significantly involved in Royal Family Kids Camp, a special summer camp experience for neglected and abused children. Each year she plans and organizes all the camp’s meals, not only making sure that local groups are invited to cook and serve, but cheerfully putting in a tremendous amount of her own time and talent.
As Susan lends her leadership and vision to these activities within the community, she also continues to create an amazing atmosphere within SJC. She strives to encourage and enhance the professional and personal lives of her employees. Susan is a constant inspiration to her team, reminding us to give our everything to the work put in front of us — but to also find new ways to contribute to the community.
We at SJC agree with Youth Alliance when they say, “We thank you, Susan, for your hard work and dedication to our youth … We thank you, Susan, for encouraging others through your actions and selfless service.”
Thank you, St. Joseph Youth Alliance, for the honoring Susan Campbell with the Superstars for Kids Award. We are proud of Susan and her continued work within the community. Join us in wishing her a congratulations today!
