The Sheridan Memorial Hospital Foundation Staff and Board of Directors are pleased to welcome Sue Belish, the newest Foundation Board Director.
During the Foundation’s Annual Meeting, held this past July, the current board unanimously voted to induct Sue into the Foundation board of directors. Additionally, the following Board members were elected as this year’s Foundation officers: President-Richard Garber, Vice President-Rob Johnson, Secretary-Vicki Jorgenson, and Treasurer-Matt Ebzery. Joe Wright will also return back to The Foundation Board, but in a new role, as the Hospital Board of Trustee Representative.
“Sue has dedicated so much of her life and energy into caring for others and improving our community. We are excited to have her join The Foundation Board of Directors,” said Chief Development Officer Cody Sinclair. “Sue will help us meet The Foundation’s mission to cultivate community involvement and support the hospital’s vision: When people think of excellent healthcare, they think of Sheridan.”
Sue likes to spend much of her free time landscaping around her home and reading when she’s not too busy remodeling her kitchen and visiting with her grandchildren as often as possible. Beyond her recent induction into The Foundation, Belish currently serves on the Chandler H. Kibbee and Mercedes K. Kibbee Foundation Board and works for the Wyoming School Boards Association in leadership development. She has also served in the past on the Wyoming State Board of Education, on the Center for a Vital Community Board, on the Tongue River Valley Community Center Board, on the Big Horn Education Fund Board, as an interim administrator for Northern Wyoming Community College District, as the principal for Tongue River Middle School, and as the superintendent of Sheridan County School District #1. Sue shared, “My reason for joining the Foundation is not because I have always had a deep passion for healthcare per say, but because I have an interest in giving back to this community. The many relationships I have formed here have been integral to my own personal success in life and I see serving on the Foundation as an opportunity to give back to that community which has given me so much.”
With all the challenging work ahead of The Foundation, Sue’s leadership, knowledge, and community spirit is a welcome addition to The Foundation Board. The Foundation looks forward to the experience, passion, and perspective Sue will bring in the coming year and all we will accomplish for healthcare in our community – together.
