Podcast episode 65: Suzanne MacPherson and making a lasting difference in Cashmere
My guest for this episode is Suzanne MacPherson, a former educator, council member, and mayor of Cashmere.
Suzanne has leveraged a strong sense of empathy, a willingness to listen deeply, and a commitment to helping people find a sense of belonging in a career and life that has changed lives in Cashmere.
Her strong will and sense of fairness led her to successfully challenge a Cashmere school policy back in the 70s decreeing that pregnant staff members resign. That’s a practice that needed to be updated and Suzanne accepted the challenge.
Suzanne is a marvelous example of a person with deep roots in the valley who is striving to make the community great for future generations. We can all learn a lesson in relationship building from her.
