Susan Greer grew up in Fort Collins and attributes her strong values and appreciation of education and the arts to her parents, Wilson and Emily Wilmarth, and PSD music teachers, Curtis Johnson and T. Carol Agee.
She attended her first symphony concert in the Old Main theater on the Colorado A and M campus in 1952. As a result of that evening, she started playing the flute and continued for the next 4 decades.
Pursuing a career in language education for 42 years, Susan mostly taught on the university level, focusing in areas of English for Non-Native speakers, teacher training, language evaluation, and program administration. Living and working at different places in Asia, Europe, and in the states gave her many fascinating educational and career experiences. She has a BA, MA and PhD.
Returning to Fort Collins upon retirement, Susan and her husband, Charles, revel in not only proximity to family, but also involvement with various organizations. Susan particularly enjoys being a member of the FCSA Education Committee, as well as the Friends of the Symphony. The opportunity to serve on the FCS Board of Directors is both an honor and a privilege.
