Susan Martens

Susan Martens has been a member of the PESLSF Board of Directors since 2008.

Shortly after joining the Board, she served as Secretary of the Board for two years. She is Secretary/Treasurer of her husband's company and taught Junior High School English for almost 20 years. Presently, she is engaged in other volunteer work besides PESLSF. She volunteers weekly in the ESOL classrooms at Portland Adult Education and at the Food Pantry in Brunswick, which is a vital part of the Mid-Coast Hunger Prevention Program. As a member of St. Paul's Episcopal Church, Brunswick, she has many opportunities to contribute her time and efforts to the ongoing programs and groups that are presently in place. Susan is passionate about education. The privilege of serving on a dynamic Board, which provides scholarship opportunities to immigrants and refugees who need language skills to succeed, fuels that passion.
