Susan Hamilton – Touching Our Community for GOOD

HamiltonFor more than 25 years, Susan Hamilton has touched the First Coast with countless good deeds for great causes.

Her dedication and reputation for having a big heart and getting the job done earned her a number of distinguished board chair positions. Susan chaired The United Way of Northeast Florida from 1996 – 1997. In 2006 – 2007 she chaired the board of Pine Castle, an organization with the mission of enriching the lives of people challenged with developmental and acquired disabilities. She chaired the Go Red for Women committee for The American Heart Association during 2008 – 2009.

For this avid college football fan, becoming the first woman to chair The Gator Bowl Association in 2003 was a great honor as well as a testament to her expert leadership skills.

These days, Susan’s heart and hands are leaving their mark on the Seamark Ranch, a Clay County home for children from crisis. Since opening its doors in 2001, Seamark Ranch has served over 60 children with its two homes, on-campus school and extensive childcare programs and under Susan’s leadership hopes to transform the lives of many more.

For her years of dedication to serving our community, Susan Hamilton will receive the HandsOn Community Award at Celebrate!GOOD 2014.
