Youth Services Quality Council

YSQC would like to Thank Susan Gunther for her dedicated years of service to our community an our youth.

Susan Gunther has worked with the youth of Rochester since 1986. She was with Westside Health Services working as the Program Coordinator for the Infant Development Program for four years. In 1990 she was hired by the Rochester City School District as an Early Childhood/ Parenting Specialist at Marshall High School. Her focus during her time with RCSD was on the academic, social and emotional success of pregnant and parenting students in her building. After 13 years with RCSD, Susan became the Program Director for Monroe Community College’s Liberty Partnerships Program in 2004. During her time with LPP, Susan has helped the program grow to serving over 280 students grades 7-12! Her motto while working with students is to “leave no stone unturned,” which is evident based on the stories alumni often share. The success of youth in Rochester is Susan’s number one passion in life. She works tirelessly to be sure each student she works with has every resource available to them to be successful. Away from work, Susan likes to visit with family across the country, attend group fitness classes at the JCC, and has also been a Court Appointed Special Advocate volunteer since 2004.
