This southern lass from Macon, Georgia, was born with bloodlines from clans McDonald, Hay, McLeod of Lewis, Mclntyre, Lamont, Campbell and Forbes. Adding one more clan, she married Kay Cummings, settled in Fort Valley, Georgia and has been a 47-year resident of Crawford county where she birthed two fine chilen: Suzanne and KC, thence grandson Cullen Cummings. In 1984, Kay and Susan attended their first highland games. The following year, Kay competed for the first time in highland athletics and won a medal as Susan watched from a beach towel. They were hooked on the "heavies" and by 1997 were doing 13 games, 3 clinics and a demonstration. Susan became an organizing, score-keeping force. With Kay as athletic director they helped establish the Culloden, Georgia Highland Games. Thereafter their schedule grew to 18 games a year. A clinic was held at their home where athletes spent the night, built a bonfire and bonded over a common ancestry. Kay became the mighty mentor of many budding highland athletes, while Susan did all the rest. She gathered materials, stitched sheafs, packed trailers, worked as grease monkey and has been ruling the realm on the athletic field because of her love of the people and the pursuit. It takes great courage to persist and help perpetuate such a unique part of our Scottish heritage, wherein mighty men and women toss trees, hurl hammers and gloat about their greatness. We, the Central Florida Scottish Highland Games, are very proud and appreciative of the enormous role Susan has played with us over the years. Her bravery will be felt for generations to come.
