Turknett Leadership Group Celebrates Achievement

Susan Hitchcock, who joined Turknett Leadership Group in 1992 as Vice President of Client Services and Director of Women's Initiatives, was awarded Agnes Scott College’s Outstanding Alumnae Award for Service to the College on April 21, 2017. This award recognizes alumnae who demonstrate extraordinary support for and dedication to the college. A native of Franklin, KY, Susan Stevens Hitchcock received her B.A. in psychology with honor from Agnes Scott in 1967.

During her 24-year career with Southern Bell/BellSouth Corporation, she held numerous leadership positions. As the first or only female leader in certain management roles, Susan championed advancement opportunities for other women. Susan now serves on the Turknett Leadership Group Board and is the founder and director of Turknett’s monthly “Women in Leadership” seminar series, now in its 15th year. In her “SHEroes” project, Susan interviewed and profiled 60+ women of achievement in a variety of fields and in 2012 she was inducted into the Womenetics Hall of Fame for her ongoing support of women and girls.

Clearly, Susan’s other passion is Agnes Scott. She has served on the Alumnae Board since 2008, was president of the Alumnae Association 2014-16 and is currently the National Alumnae Fund Chair. Susan has also served on the Board of Trustees since 2014, is a member of the Executive Committee and chairs the Student Life Committee. As an active mentor of current and past students, she invites them to various leadership forums and other high-profile events, reviews resumes, connects on social media, and helps find internships and jobs. Other roles she plays include class secretary, 50th Reunion Steering Committee volunteer, and member of a vice presidential search committee. Susan is also a strong champion of SUMMIT, Agnes Scott’s transformational and highly praised strategic leadership development and global learning initiative. In addition, she participates in and encourages other alumnae to help with recruitment and mentorship.

Susan enjoys traveling with her husband, Garland, and is “Xanna” to four teenage grandchildren.
