‘Ambassador of Goodwill’ to speak at ASU’s Polytechnic campus


February 02, 2007

MESA, Ariz. — As part of Arizona State University’s MLK celebration, Suzanne Mayo-Theus, CEO of Mynette Management Company and a professional speaker/consultant, will share her views on the importance of standing up for what you believe in and not being afraid to give back to others. Mayo-Theus will present at the Polytechnic campus, at 7 p.m., Feb. 12, Student Union Cooley Ballrooms. The free event is open to the public.

Mayo-Theus distinguishes herself as an “Ambassador of Goodwill” helping women and children around the world heal themselves after bad relationships. She has experience providing organizational leadership in the areas of workforce diversity/inclusion, and expanding organizational dialogue on diversity, minority student retention, and learning opportunities for serving underrepresented and immigrant populations in academia and community agencies.

She is an aggressive fund-raiser for not-for-profit organizations and institutions of higher education.  Her most recent work has been in helping to rebuild her home state of Louisiana, devastated by Hurricane Katrina.  She was responsible for organizing student groups and corporate executives to garner support and do clean-up for the thousands of persons displaced by Hurricane Katrina. 

She earned a bachelor’s degree from Grambling State University, a master’s degree from the University of the District of Columbia, and is currently a Ph.D. student in family studies and human services at Kansas State University. 

The Polytechnic MLK Committee, in conjunction with Student Union/Student Activities, is pleased to bring Mayo-Theus to campus as the MLK keynote speaker, as she is a dedicated example of servant leadership.
