The 2018 Eagle Grove Working Woman of the Year has called this community home her entire life. The only time Sue White didn’t live here was when she headed to college, but was happy to return home again to raise her own family here.

White has been involved in the community in a variety of ways over the years. While in high school, she worked at a drive-in restaurant and babysat for many families around town. After graduating from EGHS, she worked for Dr. Snively in Clarion as an optometric assistant. Then she accepted her job at Wells Fargo where she has remained for the last 32 years.

Volunteering has also been a way of life for White, always giving back to her community. Past involvement has included working on the After-Prom Committee, being a Sunday School Teacher at Samuel Lutheran Church (where she has been a life-long member), as well as having been involved in Sports Boosters and Beta Sigma Phi Sorority.

“Every year you can see her shaking lemonade at the county fair, helping distribute food for the Food Bank of Iowa, volunteering for the Clarion Theatre, or in the Wright County Fair Parade waving to the community,” said her friends from Wells Fargo in their nomination letter to the Chamber.

White also currently serves as an Our Foundation for the Future board member, is part of the Rotary Club, and serves as an Eagle Grove Chamber Ambassador.
