GLENWOOD CITY – The community education program at the Glenwood City School District has hired Sue Nueske to take over as coordinator.
Nueske has a Bachelor’s Degree in Math and Music from St. Olaf College and a Master’s Degree in School Counseling from Minnesota State University-Mankato.
For over five years she worked at the Hudson YMCA as the Active Older Adults Coordinator until she was recently hired at the school district.
“I know I love creating relationships within a community and starting up programs that are fun and beneficial to participants. Community Education seemed like a great opportunity to get involved in my own community while also working with the school district staff and students,” said Nueske.
Nueske shared that her vision for the program would be to have classes such as a babysitting course, hunter’s safety, SilverSneakers, step aerobics or Les Mills fitness programs, a community garden, archery, knitting and crocheting and more computer classes that are creative like Microsoft Publisher.
As coordinator she will be creating the Community Education catalog as well as promoting and distributing it. She will also be restarting the Community Education Advisory Council to get input on ideas and see what role the program plays now and in the future.
“I am just really excited about working with in the school district and with the community. One of my personal goals on every path I take is to just make a difference in someone else’s life. The Starfish Story epitomizes this goal,” shared Nueske.
Nueske grew up in Eau Claire and graduated from Hudson High School. She and her two children moved to Glenwood City in 2011 after she married Darwin Nueske.
In her free time Nueske can be found golfing at Glen Hills and she also enjoys bow hunting, playing piano, movies, teaching fitness classes and most of all spending time with her family.
