Making a Difference in Our Community: Susan Ingersoll Shares Her Passion for Science

For Biotechnology Professor Susan Ingersoll, science is life — so much so that, when she isn’t teaching biotechnology courses at Valencia, you’ll find her volunteering in the science department at Cornerstone Charter Academy.

The K-12 charter school, which offers a STEM focus and biomedical program, is also where Susan’s daughter studies.

In her fourth year of volunteering at the school, Susan says she enjoys sharing her love of science and engaging with the school’s student population.

“I really enjoy working with the students at the school,” she said. “I love sharing my science knowledge and experience with the students. I really enjoy seeing the smiles on their faces and the light bulbs go off in their brains when they complete their experiments or share their projects with me.”

Throughout Valencia’s 50th anniversary year, to celebrate the College’s service to our community, we will feature stories of Valencia’s community impact and the volunteer efforts of our colleagues. Whether you volunteer as a board member of a foundation or you serve meals to the homeless, we want to hear about it, because every act of kindness is worth celebrating. To submit a Valencia volunteer story, simply email the following information:

  • Your name
  • Your photo (preferably of you volunteering)
  • Where you volunteer and a description of the organization
  • How long you have volunteered with that organization
  • Why you choose to volunteer with that organization
  • What you enjoy most about volunteering with that organization
