Outline: Issues and tribulations encountered by Jerrie Mock during her historic flight around the world as told by her sister, Susan Reid. 

Presenter:  Susan Reid, Sister of Jerrie Mock

Susan, a native of Newark, Ohio, worked as a classroom teacher and school librarian. After retiring with thirty years in the Heath City School System, she worked part-time for Par Excellence Learning Center for eleven years.  She also worked part-time for the Pataskala Public Library, automating their system.

Susan received her Bachelor of Science Degree from Ohio University and a Master of Library Science degree from Kent State University.                 

Retirement gave Susan the opportunity to travel extensively, volunteer at Newark’s Midland Theater, and plays more golf.  She is a member of The Research Club, Chapter DL of P.E.O., and The Monday Talks, where she served as Vice-President and President.  When she joined The Progressive Club, she started her new “career” which is presenting programs.  Her favorite program features her sister, Jerrie Mock, who became the first woman to complete a solo flight around the world.  Other programs include Women in Flight, Johnny Clem (drummer boy of Shiloh), and Legends of Hollywood. 

Susan and her husband, Jerry, have two daughters and two granddaughters.

This presentation is valid for one CPD.
