Please join us in celebration of Susan Rushing’s distinguished career.
Rushing has held numerous positions since joining Burke in 1980 and has served as Burke’s Chief Executive Officer for twenty-nine years. Her leadership is characterized by her emphasis on innovation, collaboration, and staff development. Her skills in maintaining successful relationships with Burke’s Board of Trustees as well as state and local leaders facilitated the center’s success. She is valued by her staff not only for being strategic in her focus for the center but also as being a warm and supportive mentor.
Rushing is not only the CEO for this multi-county, multi-faceted organization; she is also deeply involved in many state and national boards and holds membership in numerous other professional and community organizations. Rushing has served as representative to the Professional and Technical Advisory Committee of Joint Commission. She is past Chair of the Board of Directors of Mental Health Corporations of America and the Executive Directors Consortium of the Texas Council of Community Centers.
Colleagues describe Rushing as visionary, compassionate, and utterly brilliant. Her achievements extend well beyond the role of administrator. Because of Susan Rushing’s contributions, Burke is recognized as a statewide leader in grant funding, client services, and community focus.
We hope you can join us in honoring our remarkable leader and her outstanding contributions. Susan Rushing’s retirement party will be held at Burke Central Administration on June 25th from 10 a.m. to noon.
