Polite. Civilized. Sweet. Iron willed. Tenacious. Spunky. Important. Accomplished. Community activist. These are all words that describe Susanne Sullivan.
Sullivan, someone who becomes involved with organizations and causes she truly believes in and gets things done, is known for not taking “no” from anyone. And that is a big reason why the Galveston Historical Foundation’s Steel Oleander selection committee chose her as this year’s recipient of one of the island’s highest honors.
