  • Senior Vice President of Marketing, Paducah Bank & Co-Founder of Guess Anti-Bullying Foundation
  • Paducah, Kentucky   


Susan is the senior vice president and marketing director for Paducah Bank. Susan won the Kentucky Volunteer Service in 1998 after she chaired a $100,000 memorial garden to honor three girls killed in the Heath High School shooting. She also won the national Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Community Service Award after starting Girl Scout troops in low income housing. She co-founded the Guess Anti-Bullying Foundation three years ago with her 11 year old daugher. The duo have raised nearly $35,000 to support bully education and to fund special anti-bullying projects in the community. The Guess Foundation brought national author and activist Jodee Blanco to the community to speak to more than 6,000 students in grades 4-12. The mother/daughter team also brought Lee Hirsch to Paducah to host a special screening of the movie, BULLY. The organization has purchased educational tool kits for any school in Kentucky who is interested. Earlier this year Guess and her daughter volunteered at the BULLY movie offices in New York and were invited to co-write an op-ed piece for the Huffington Post for National Bully Prevention Month. The two were also recently featured in a CNN article on the topic. They are working to convince their Governor to appoint a statewide task force.
