Sue Colussy receives prestigious Friend of CLINIC award
Catholic Charities Atlanta is pleased to announce that our Immigration Legal Services’ program director, Sue Colussy, was rewarded with a lifetime achievement award at the recent Catholic Legal Immigration Network, Inc. (CLINIC) gathering in New Orleans, LA.
The Friend of CLINIC award goes to a program director in CLINIC’s network who has been outstanding in program development and service in her community, has served as a model for other program directors, and has aided CLINIC by serving as a mentor and advisor. This award is not given on an annual basis, but rather only when it is merited. A number of CLINIC’s leaders
and staff including Maria Odom, Jack Holmgren, and Dinah Suncin suggested that Sue Colussy be recognized for her outstanding work.
Maria Odom, the executive director for CLINIC, announced the “Friend of CLINIC” for Sue Colussy earlier this spring. “We are very proud to award Sue Colussy our Friend of CLINIC award. Among our affiliates, Sue has been a pioneer, a mentor, a friend, an advocate, and a conscientious Program Director.
Because of the growth and success of her program, thousands of vulnerable and low income immigrants have access to excellent legal representation in the Atlanta area each year. We applaud Sue for her commitment and for her selfless service to Catholic Charities Atlanta and to our network!”
