Susie's Story

Working Class Roots

Susie Lee was born to a working class family in Canton, Ohio. She learned the values of hard work and stretching a dollar, starting with a paper route at the age of eight. Her father was a military veteran who worked at a steel plant, while her mother stayed at home to care for the family of 8 kids. 

After graduating from public schools, Susie worked her way through Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh with a combination of scholarships, loans and part-time jobs. 


A Champion for Education


After moving to Las Vegas in 1993, Susie became the Founding Director of After-School All-Stars, which serves over 7,000 students every day after school. Since 2010, Susie served as President of Communities In Schools of Nevada (CIS), a leading dropout prevention organization. Under Susie’s leadership, CIS has grown to serve over 64,000 students in 63 schools in Nevada. As a member of Congress, Susie is fighting for Nevada's 3rd District students every day.
