Susannah’s Gift

This is a dedicated scholarship fund managed through the Park Foundation in memory of Susannah Kist. Susannah taught theater, music and craft classes for 16 wonderful years with the Palatine Park District. It was her vision and dream that everyone should be able to enjoy the cultural arts locally within their own community. Susannah unfortunately lost her courageous battle with breast cancer on December 4, 2009. This scholarship fund and the donations derived from her honor and memory helps keep her vision and dream alive and creates wonderful opportunities for all residents to enjoy the cultural and performing arts offered through the Palatine Park District. To date more than XX scholarships have been awarded in memory of Susannah.
