Susan Wesley (c. 1887 - ?):
Maid of Cloverleaf and Decoration of Honor Recipient
Wesley displayed further faithfulness towards her post during the 1944 hurricane, where she remained at the College despite the dangerous winds and heavy rain. According to an interview done with Ms. Wesley, many urged her to return home, but she refused, claiming she would rather be in Cloverleaf. The morning of the hurricane, a strong gust of wind forced a store window in, causing a piece of glass to fly up and hit her. An even stronger gust lifted her up and carried her back down the street. “Nothing really disturbed her though until she reached the campus where the girls were yelling ‘hurry up Suzy, run.”
During the 1948 commencement ceremony, President Hamilton Holt remarked: "Susie Wesley, for your many years of faithful service to Rollins, during which you and I have both worked for the college that we love; for your help to many hundreds of Rollins freshman girls; for your influence in Winter Park through church and club; for your generous service far beyond the call of duty; for your life as a Christian woman and a loving follower of our Lord Jesus Christ, Rollins College is honored in conferring on you the Decoration of Honor and admits you to all its rights and privileges."
