I Am West Georgia

Suzanne Horton

Suzanne HortonYears at UWG: 9.5 years.

My job title: Secretary for ITS-Classroom Support & Multimedia (formerly LRC).

What I really do: Help people, encourage students, and overall try to help people with technology.

Birthplace: Carrollton.

Family: I am a mother of two wonderful children and wife to a very talented husband. I have one sister with a large family and I am blessed to still have my parents and my husband’s parents.

People describe me as: An enthusiast, dependable, family-oriented person.

My favorite things to do: Spend time with family, horseback riding, bowling and teaching children at church.

My proudest accomplishment: My children.

My passion: Education. I think we all should be life long learners.

My pet peeve: There is not enough time in a day to accomplish everything I need to get done.

Before UWG, I: Worked on a production assembly line and in sales.

I joined UWG because: Of its place in the community. I wanted to be a part of something that influential.

I stay because: In some small way I feel that I contribute to UWG as well as my community and the world.

One thing I would change about UWG: We need more of the same type of people who are willing to go the extra mile to make a difference in someone’s life.

The best advice I ever received: Don’t worry about things you have no control over.

The best advice I’d give to new faculty and staff: The only way to have a friend is to be one.

When I was a child, I wanted to be: A teacher.

Most people don't know that: It is difficult for me to reach out to someone I don’t know.

My favorite quotation: "Without God, there is no virtue, because there's no prompting of the conscience. Without God, we're mired in the material, that the world tells us only what the senses perceive. Without God, there is a coarsening of the society. And without God, democracy will not and cannot long endure. If we ever forget that we're one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under."
Ronald Wilson Reagan, 1994

The book I think everyone should read: Purpose Driven Life, Rick Warren.

The movie I think everyone should watch:Gone with the Wind.”

My favorite memory: The days when my children were born and I looked into the small faces of joy.

The person (alive or dead) I’d most like to meet: My Great, Great, Great Grandmothers.

What I would most like to have if castaway on an island: My family.

What I would do if I won the lottery: I would pay off all my debts and the debts of my family. Then buy a house at the beach and one in the mountains and celebrate.

What I most want to contribute to students: This advice: Let your dreams be bigger than life, so you always have a goal to achieve. But make reality your companion so that you can survive each day.

Although you didn’t ask, I’d like to tell you anyway: I love to meet new people and learn from them.
