She was also the anchor rider on the Kappa mini tricycle team for Little 500 weekend. The Kappa's won the race three years in a row and the record was never broken. As an alum, she served as secretary of the Indiana University Alumni board of directors, and was awarded the Wayne County Outstanding Alumni Award. After college, Sue became a stewardess with American Airlines, and was among the first 150 flight attendants trained on the Boeing 707, one of the first jets to travel coast to coast.
