Susie Everett has maintained a love and respect for Ouachita Baptist University since she was a student there in the mid-1970s.
Though she obtained her nursing degree from University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, she earned her basic college credits during her two and a half years at OBU and now she's helping the school in an advisory capacity.
Everett, who spreads her talents and leadership among many area groups and agencies, is one of the four newest members of the OBU Board of Trustees.
